Geography holds the key to our future. It is a field of science devoted to the study of the lands, features, inhabitants, and phenomena of the Earth and how they interact with one another.
As an up-to-date, highly relevant subject, it’s one of the most exciting, adventurous and valuable areas of study today. So many of the world's current problems have answers in Geography and need the geographers of the future to help us understand them. Global warming, sustainable food production, more frequent natural disasters, the spread of disease, migration and the future of energy resources are just some of the great challenges facing the next generation of geographers.
Geography captures the imagination of our students and helps them to contextualise and understand the issues they see locally, regionally and globally.
The overall aim of KS3 Geography is to enable students to understand and interpret their world whilst laying a solid foundation for the upcoming themes at GCSE. Students become effective and independent learners, and critical and reflective thinkers with enquiring minds. We also strive to develop student awareness of the usefulness of geographical analysis, to understand and solve contemporary human and environmental problems.
