Geography is taught as discrete subject to all students in Years 7, 8, and 9. The aim is that by the end of Key Stage 3, all pupils will have gained knowledge of the basic geographical concepts as well as understanding of the world in terms of both its physical and human geography.

Our Primary pupils split the academic year between History & Geography.

Class work is reinforced by field trips and other practical activities including a river study and a coastal investigation.
