Curriculum Intent

The Geography curriculum follows the National Curriculum and is designed to investigate the human and physical strands of this diverse and thought provoking subject. Our curriculum enables students to build knowledge, skills and understanding to face the emerging challenges of the modern world and help shape our societies and environments at local, national and global scales.

Students study a wide range of topics which cover current affairs – students need to see that Geography is all around them, and that our generations are impacting on our planet – both negatively and positively. The curriculum develops students’ geographical thinking through the sequence of lessons. To ensure that students are in the best position to retain new information, each unit is designed to build towards an end point which helps locate their theoretical understanding in the real world
