Key Stage 3
A GCSE ready Geography student will be able to develop a sense of place and interpret their surroundings in order to gain a better appreciation and passion for understanding the variety of physical and human conditions on the earth’s surface. Their love of Geography will breed confidence in developing major skill areas such as map and fieldwork skills; cross-curricular skills such as ICT, literacy and numeracy, as well as an increasing awareness of the world around them and the idea of sustainability. Our geographers will become global citizens and show a keen awareness of the geography around them and empathy for their fellow humans, regardless of background or geographic location.
Our geographers are curious and want to develop a wide interest and knowledge beyond their immediate experiences. They confidently use images and information to help them gain an understanding of people and concepts that they acquire from various media. We provide our geographers with a wide variety of fieldwork opportunities at a range of scales, from examining local habitats to exciting international destinations. The dynamic nature of Geography provides us with opportunities to stretch and challenge all our pupils with up to the minute learning. Our geographers are exposed to a plethora of desirable and transferrable skills, which will open up employment opportunities for them in the future.
