Geography

 

The Geography course uses the National Curriculum as a guideline but ultimately draws much of the content from a Christian viewpoint, looking at the geography that God gave us, as introduced in the Book of Genesis.

The pupils investigate a wide range of people, places and environments around the world and how they are connected.

In Key Stage 3 pupils have one lesson a week studying geographical patterns and processes and how political, economic, social and environmental factors affect contemporary geographical issues. Topics include Weather and Climate, Rivers, Coastal Erosion, Globalisation, Population and Development. Pupils are also expected to complete fortnightly homework to reinforce their learning.

Pupils are assessed continually through class work, homework, tests, self-assessment and 3 formal assessments.

At Key Stage 4 pupils follow the Edexcel Geography A syllabus. This course culminates with 3 examinations, in Physical Geography, Human Geography and Fieldwork skills, totalling 100% of the mark.

As well as geographical skills, pupils complete work on topics such as the changing UK landscape, ecosystems, changing urban areas and global developments. Pupils also undertake 2 fieldwork tasks on changing rural areas and coasts.
