“Geography is, in the broadest sense, an education for life and for living. Learning through geography – whether gained through formal learning or experientially through travel, fieldwork and expeditions – helps us all to be more socially and environmentally sensitive, better informed, and more responsible as citizens.”

Royal Geographical Society

Geography is taught weekly in Primary, where pupils from EYFS to Year 6 are made aware of their place in the world which helps them better understand the people, places and environments across the globe. Drawing on the vast range of vocabulary to identify and name places, the features within them and the human and physical processes, provides the building blocks of deeper explanation and understanding. We aim that every pupil is able to read, speak and write like a geographer.

Geography is a compulsory subject for KS3 and is currently taught twice a week in two separate single lessons for Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9.

Pupils in Year 10 and Year 11 study the GCSE course; this is taught across three lessons per week in Year 10 and four lessons per week in Year 11. Pupils in Years 12 and 13 study the A-level course which is designed to encourage pupils to become independent thinkers, who are confident in discussing ideas, developing research skills and knowledge. The A-level course is delivered across six lessons per week. The curriculum for EYFS, KS1 and KS2 can also be downloaded below.

Geography topics are categorised into enquiry questions, which form an overarching structure for each unit of work. Enquiry questions enable pupils to anchor their conceptual understanding within the subject, are referred to in each lesson, and answered at the end of the unit.

Mission statement

Our pupils will be critical thinkers. They will be able to analyse how humans and their physical environment are interdependent and have an impact on each other.

They will also become global citizens, understanding how their actions not only affect the present but can have positive or indeed negative impacts for future generations and how to reduce this.
