Geography

Subject Leader: Miss L Jones (Maternity Leave)

Vision / Intent:

Geography is an exciting and engaging subject which aims to help students gain a better understanding of the world around them. Students will explore a wide range of topics and will look at both human and physical geography. We aim to inspire students to be more inquisitive about the world around them and to encourage them to make a positive change for the future.

Approach / Philosophy / Implementation:

All pupils will receive a 1 hour lesson each week and follow the National Curriculum guidelines for Geography. The Geography course reflects the new GCSE syllabus and will teach students the knowledge along with the skills that they will need to reach their full potential at GCSE. In lessons a range of teaching strategies are used to help students develop their knowledge and understanding, these include paired work, enquiry-based learning, hot-seating, dilemma-based learning along with individual, paired, group and whole class activities.
