Geography

 

Year 7 Year 8 Year 9 Year 10 Year 11

 
The Geography Department aims to provide a broad, yet relevant, geographical education during Y7, Y8 and Y9. This education develops an awareness of the ways people interact with their environment and enables students to appreciate the differences in opportunities and constraints that people face in different places.  It also examines world scale topics, such as global warming and globalisation.

In Key Stage 4 students study Physical and Human Themes using a wide range of resources.  Work is done in pairs, in groups and as whole class activities.  Students have the opportunity to evaluate sustainable development issues as part of their assessed work.  The course provides a very good platform for A Level and also subjects such as Economics. 

As a department we encourage student independence and participation in local and national competitions such as the GA Quiz.
