Curriculum

Geography

Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 & 9)

Throughout years 7 to 9 we look to create wonder in the world around us as well as an understanding of how humans have interacted with the natural world. We look to equip students with the necessary skills to ask questions, solve problems and to find answers. Students are assessed in a variety of ways, from tests, to essays to presentations and projects. Students study the following topics:

Year 7 students study:

  • Map Reading Skills
  • Similarities and differences
  • Weather and climate
  • Ecosystems

Year 8 students study:

  • Population
  • China – A country study
  • Urbanisation
  • Plate Tectonics

Year 9 students study:

  • Rivers
  • Development
  • Tourism
  • Coasts

Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11)

Through the Cambridge IGCSE Geography syllabus, students will develop a 'sense of place' by looking at the world around them on a local, regional and global scale. Students will examine a range of natural and man-made environments, and study some of the processes which affected their development. They will also look at the ways in which people interact with their environment and the opportunities and challenges an environment can present, thereby gaining a deeper insight into the different communities and cultures that exist around the world.

Long Term Plans

The long term plans set out the programmes of study for the whole academic year and enables parents to see the topics being studied term by term.
