Geography

Geography is taught to students from Years 8- 13. Across each of the key stages we have developed schemes of work which allow the students to understand both the physical and human elements of Geography and its importance and relevance to the world in which we live in today. A key component of Geography is learning outside of the classroom and where possible students are provided with the experience of a variety of places, these range from exploring our local surroundings, to international trips to Iceland. Lessons are taught using a range of activities and we always strive to provide students with up to date examples. Students are also assessed in a variety of ways and there is on going feedback in lessons on students performance and how they can continue to make progression.
