Geography

Please see below for detailed Annual Overviews.

The curriculum is designed to inspire and engage. Curriculum lays the foundations on which KS4 knowledge and skills will be built. Resources to support the scheme of work will reflect those we have developed and continue to develop. In keeping with the topical nature of the subject new material will be updated. Plan to use a wide range of learning activities / always challenge the students / be provocative and questioning at all times. Assessment is to take place at the end of each topic within the programme.
