Geography

Geography Curriculum Summary

In Geography students will be learning about the world around them locally, nationally and internationally. The course will give students the opportunity to learning about their world in the 21st Century and encourage them to explore the importance of geography for understanding the world around them.

The world around us is always changing and the Geography curriculum demonstrates these changes. Students will investigate topical issues and use different case studies to understand the impact of these issues on the world. Students are encouraged to develop an independent curiosity about their interactions with the world around them.

Students develop geographical skills such as map work, enquiry and analysis, research and use of new technologies such as GIS. Geography aims to equip the students with the knowledge and understanding to comprehend the issues facing the world today.

Year 7 introduces geographers to key maps skills and knowledge about the UK and the world around them before developing their geographical imagination through investigation of a wide range of places from Croydon to China and beyond.
