Dramatic landscapes and seascapes, the science of ‘what lies beneath’ and the vast forces that shape and are shaped by human existence all go to make up the stuff of Geography. Here, we seek to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. In order to achieve this, we equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. At root, Geography helps pupils to explore how the natural environment has impacted upon the human species, and, how the human species has, and is, impacting on the environment – for good and bad. With plenty of scope for field work in all Key Stages, it’s clip boards out, and anoraks and wellies on as pupils are encouraged to take a very hands-on approach!
key stage 3
Here, we study, the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time. The earth’s structures, plate tectonics, and population growth and its impact are studied, in addition to development and urbanisation, climate change and weather.
