Geography

Key Stage 3
Key Stage 4

The Abbey Grange Geography Curriculum aims to ensure that our students hold the key the world’s future problems. We will do this in KS3 by providing a high-quality geography education which will inspire in our students a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Geography is a living, breathing subject, constantly adapting itself to change. It is dynamic and relevant. Geography should be a great adventure with a purpose.

In Geography, we aim to:

  • develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places – both terrestrial and marine – including their defining physical and human characteristics and how these provide a geographical context for understanding the actions of processes.
  • understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time
  • be competent in the geographical skills needed to:
  1. collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes
  2. interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS)
  3. communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.

As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.

Ultimately, we aim to develop global citizens through enjoyment from learning about ourselves and the world around us. This will allow our students to make a positive contribution to wider society and prepare them for life in a diverse community.

In Geography, we aim to:

  • develop detailed understanding the physical Geographical processes that create land forms across the UK.
  • understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time.
  • appreciate how human and physical processes are interlinked and influence each other.
  • investigate Geographical issues in the United Kingdom (UK), higher income countries (HICs), newly emerging economies (NEEs)and lower income countries (LICs).
  • have in depth knowledge and understanding of global issues that will affect our futures, including climate change, poverty, deprivation, global shifts in economic power and the challenge of sustainable resource use.
  • develop an understanding of their role in society, by considering different viewpoints, values and attitudes.
  • be competent in the geographical skills needed to:
  1. collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of field work that deepen their understanding of geographical processes
  2. interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes,aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS)
  3. communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps,numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.

Ultimately, we aim to develop global and responsible citizens through enjoyment from learning about ourselves and the world around us. This will allow our students to make a positive contribution to wider society and prepare them for life in a diverse community.
