Geography

We have designed our curriculum using the KS3 National Curriculum and it is delivered under the framework of the IB Middle Years programme. We have also referenced the KS2 Programmes of Study in our initial planning.

Our Overall goal is to produce well-rounded citizens and geographers who can confidently confront common misconceptions with accurate facts and concepts. We help our students develop cultural capital by assisting them in comprehending the present world in its depth and breadth. Geography fundamentally includes a dialogue between the physical, social, economic and environmental issues in the world around them. We have designed our curriculum using the KS3 National Curriculum and it is delivered under the framework of the IB Middle Years programme. We have also referenced the KS2 Programmes of Study in our initial planning. For example they learn about how countries are at various stages of development due to the geographical factors determining its position and how the lives of the people who live there are vastly different with the country and to ours.

Geography also aids in the understanding of the various monumental environmental challenges that are affecting the world in which we all live, as well as how to make sense of their consequences in context. As a powerful bridging subject, geography has strong cross curricular links to many topics the students will study in school.
