KS3

Throughout Years 7 to 9 we cover a variety of Geography topics, selected to equip students with an excellent knowledge and understanding about the world around them. Whilst these topics support the study of Geography higher up the school, they also encourage students to develop a curiosity about the issues, places, people and events, and support students in their development of a range of skills.

KS4

At GCSE, students will follow the AQA specification. This is an interesting and varied course, perfect for any student who has enjoyed their study of Geography at KS3. Key geographical ideas are taught through the use of up-to-date, real life examples. Lessons are delivered through a variety of teaching methods, including discussions, group work, debates, fieldwork, role play, presentations, video clips, map work, ICT and personal research.

KS5

At A-level, Geographers follow the Edexcel specification. This two year course is split largely into areas of physical and human topics, which are taught by two subject specialists. The depth, and complexity of Geography at this level is much greater than previous years, but students are well-equipped and well-supported to meet all of its challenges, and enjoy the satisfaction that comes with understanding the real-life, real-people, real-world issues that are covered.
