Geography

Curriculum Intent

In Geography, our curriculum intent is:

  • To encourage students to be curious about the world around them; developing a knowledge of the places, processes and decisions which shape our evolving and contested world at a variety of scales
  • Ground theories and ideas in the context of the United Kingdom, and where possible the local context
  • Develop Geographic enquiry through the provision of fieldwork and ongoing development of enquiry skills
  • Create an environment which promotes a life-long love of learning about the world and help students identify their role as stewards in shaping and protecting physical and human environments now and in their futures
