On the KS4 (GCSE) curriculum students will study a course based on a balanced framework of physical and human geography. It allows students to investigate the link between the two themes, and approach and examine the battles between the man-made and natural worlds. Students will travel the world from their classroom, exploring case studies in the United Kingdom (UK), higher income countries (HICs), newly emerging economies (NEEs) and lower income countries (LICs). Topics of study include climate change, poverty, deprivation, global shifts in economic power and the challenge of sustainable resource use. Students are also encouraged to understand their role in society,
Students who complete the course will have the skills and experience to progress onto A-level and beyond.
In addition to the academic curriculum the geography department also runs numerous extra –curricular activities that include the John Muir Award and the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
