GEOGRAPHY

THE GEOGRAPHY CURRICULUM

Our ambition is to produce global citizens who are curious about their world, developing the skills to independently deepen their understanding of what they see and experience around them and never shying away from understanding that the rights and privileges they have, come with personal responsibilities to their communities, region, and wider world. We inspire students to appreciate their locality, alongside stimulating their interest in the global community.

 

As we identify the key knowledge students should master in geography we think carefully about how we want students to think as geographer. We want students to:

  • Be able to apply knowledge of physical and human characteristics and processes to build geographical understanding of the world around them
  • Use their understanding of the interdependence of key physical and human geographical features to make decisions and evaluate their impact
  • Be competent in the geographical skills needed to:
  • Collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes
  • Interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs, and Geographical Information Systems (GIS)
  • Communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length

 

The geography curriculum is sequenced around the following key concepts:

  • Cause and effect
  • Change
  • Location and place
  • Decision making

 

Subjects include GCSE Geography, A-level Geography and BTEC Travel and Tourism.
