The Geography department is extraordinarily enthusiastic about our subject and we strive to create exciting, imaginative and inspiring lessons that allow students to experience Geography through a variety of innovative mediums. The study of Geography is vital, as it offers not only an excellent understanding of the many ways that the world has developed and changed over time, but also a greater understanding of the world we live in today.
The Geography course at Key Stage 3 provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to access the AQA Geography course in Key Stage 4. Students will develop an understanding of the world we live in and develop the necessary skills for the GCSE Geography Qualification. Studying Geography gives students the opportunity to travel the world via the classroom, learning about both natural and social sciences along the way. They will understand how Geography impacts everyday life and discover the key opportunities and challenges facing the world. Students will also develop academic and life skills from writing, teamwork and communication to analytical skills. The learning journey starts in Year 7 and is built upon in year 8.
