Geography

Curriculum Content Overview

 

Commitment to continuous improvement 

Our students develop confidence and resilience through:  

  • Learning about other countries, places, cultures and beliefs, as well as their own which in turn develops meaning and a sense of place in the world. 

  • Engaging in lessons which help them to overcome the perceived inward-looking nature of life in small rural towns. 

 

Acknowledgement of efforts and achievements 

We help students achieve highly at KS3, KS4 and beyond by:  

  • Broadening their horizons through fieldwork opportunities to see Geography in action.  

  • Preparing them thoroughly for their external and internal examinations through Pre-Public Examinations and regular practice of exam questions in lessons and for home learning.  

  • Using extensive retrieval practice and low stakes testing to ensure knowledge is embedded and develops into richer, long term cognitive schema 

 

Respect for others and the environment 

We create students who: 

  • Have a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes and the challenges that we are currently facing as a planet whilst charting a more sustainable future.  

  • Are equipped with knowledge about diverse people and places to help build mutual respect and tolerance towards others. 

 

Excellence in all that we do 

We raise the aspirations and ambition of our students by: 

  • Experiencing success and progress through assessments of knowledge, understanding and skills developed through a broad and balanced curriculum.
