Key stage 4 Geography
Why study Geography?
Geography helps us to make sense of the world and gives us the chance to get to grips with some of the big questions that affect us.
Geography is taught through a range of accessible and engaging topics – providing a stimulating blend of traditional and contemporary Geography. This popular course covers the study of physical and human Geography and focuses on physical processes that produce diverse and dynamic landscapes over time.
Fieldwork is an essential part of the course, providing students with a brilliant opportunity to experience some of the things they have learnt about in class, seeing things differently and of course having fun. There are fieldwork opportunities in year 9 and 2 days compulsory fieldwork in year 10.
What skills will students develop?
The study of this course will give students the opportunity to develop communication skills, graphical and cartographical skills, technological skills including ICT and Geographical Information Systems, interpersonal skills through debate and discussion, literacy and numeracy skills – continually developed through written questions and problem solving skills. Enquiry based learning is at the forefront of the teaching of the subject, therefore allowing the opportunity for personalised and independent learning. Students are also encouraged to understand their role in society, by considering different viewpoints, values and attitudes.
This variety makes Geography a highly respected, successful and popular course.
