In Geography, students develop and consolidate their prior knowledge of the world’s major countries and their physical and human features. Throughout all years, students will improve key skills that are specialist and yet transferrable across many subjects. These include:

o Use of computer systems e.g. GIS

o The ability to read and confidently use Ordnance Survey maps both in the classroom and out in the field

o Demonstrate map, globe and atlas reading skills

o Collect, analyse and draw conclusions from a variety of fieldwork experiences

Students will focus on four specific areas: physical geography, human geography, location knowledge and place knowledge; vital areas of understanding for students wishing to progress onto the GCSE course.
