AIMS AND PHILOSOPHY

Geography is a subject that produces interest and enthusiasm from young people.  It is an issues based subject and has a unique opportunity to excite pupils through the use of real, relevant and topical studies.  It helps develop enquiring minds where students are encouraged to ask questions, working towards independence and informed opinions.

Geography has a special role to play in developing an understanding of different cultures within the school community, local community and wider society.  It encourages a love of landscapes, an appreciation of the physical environment and an understanding of the needs to respect and protect certain environments.

It is our aim to ensure that pupils will have good knowledge of the world as it is now, the motivation to find out how the world will change in the future and how to be involved as an active citizen in a changing world.

CURRICULUM

At Key Stage 3 students follow a course of study that introduces them to vital skills in Geography.  Pupils cover all aspects of the National Curriculum through 6 themes in each year. Every year group studies a different topic within each theme building on the knowledge, understanding and skills they have previously learned. It is an interesting and challenging programme of study and aims to instil a deeper appreciation of the world around us.

At Key Stage 4 students are encouraged to continue their studies in Geography. The department offers the WJEC GCSE Geography course which enhances the skills developed at KS3.

At Key Stage 5 students have access to the OCR Advanced Level course in Geography.
