The Geography curriculum is designed to challenge our students to develop a greater knowledge and understanding of our world and the challenges faced by people and the environments within it.   

What is taught and how?

Our students study a wide variety of Physical and Human Geography topics in 3-4 broad units of work per year. We use places to demonstrate key concepts on local and global scales. Embedded into our curriculum are skills that are essential to Geographers which include; decision making, mapwork and fieldwork.

A broad outline of what is taught in each year can be found below.


Geography students are assessed at the end of each unit of work. This includes a GCSE exam style test which is an opportunity to show understanding and apply what has been learnt.


All students are expected to learn the content of a general Geography knowledge organiser. Students are tested regularly on this knowledge which enables them to access our subject and make better progress. Other homework tasks include researching places or bringing in items for use in class, Seneca online tasks and revision.
