In Year 7, 8 and 9 students have two lessons of Geography each week. In Year 10 and 11 students can opt to do Geography GCSE.
In our academy, geography is aimed at inspiring young people to be curious and fascinated by the human and physical world, and its complex interactions. Our contemporary curriculum considers the sustainability of this complex relationship and engages learners with the impact their actions have on the planet.
At the core of our curriculum planning is the concept of challenge. The teachers within geography design appropriately challenging lessons that allow students to access complex material and concepts. The geography curriculum is also designed to be highly engaging, promoting aspiration for all students irrespective of their starting point and learning needs.
Experiences within geography are wide and varied, with a range of opportunities for study beyond the classroom, including fieldwork activities. All experiences are aimed at developing challenge, resilience and imagination, as well as developing an understanding of what a global citizen is.
Geography has an impact on everyday life, and so understanding this is key to developing a full understanding of the economic, social, environmental and political realities that shape the world we live . in. We provide a starting point for lifelong learning of these realities.
