Geography

“The study of geography is about more than just memorising places on a map. It’s about understanding the complexity of the world; appreciating the diversity of cultures that exists across continents and, in the end, it’s about using all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together”

Barack Obama

 

Vision

The Geography Department encourages students to be curious and enthusiastic about the ever-changing world we live in. Students extend their knowledge of human and physical processes that shape the world we live in today by studying a broad range of interesting and stimulating topics

 

Curriculum Intent

  • Give pupils a sense of place by learning about countries, cities and regions from different continents, at different levels of development.
  • Understand how physical processes have shaped the landscape we live in and continue to do so today.
  • Explore the relationships between humans and the natural landscape, how we are causing changes to the earth and trying to manage them.
  • Promote collaborative work within lessons so pupils are fully engaged and can develop individual and teamwork skills to make them better learners throughout School.
  • Students will develop and extend their knowledge of locations, places, environments and processes of different scales. Students will learn to apply geographical knowledge, understanding, skills and approaches appropriately and creatively to real world contexts, including fieldwork, and to contemporary situations and issues; and develop well-evidenced arguments drawing on their geographical knowledge and understanding.
