Our geography curriculum has been designed to celebrate the wide and diverse geographical profile of our pupils. It develops an understanding of how the environments around us are formed and the changes that happen based on weather, time or other factors such as human interaction.

Experiential learning and fieldwork is at the heart of the geography curriculum and pupils use local sites, tools and visits to develop a real-world understanding of geography. A clear progression of skills ensures learning develops breadth and depth each year and as with all other subject areas, subject-specific vocabulary is explicitly taught and builds on language taught across the curriculum. This allows pupils to explain these factors and relate them to other subject areas.

The themes of ‘social action’ and ‘social responsibility’ are woven throughout our geography curriculum as we endeavour to provide our pupils with the ability to understand the world they live in and an awareness that that they, as global citizens, are able to help improve it.
