In Year 7 Geography lessons students cover Geography skills, Tectonic plates, the causes and impact of flooding and drought and tourism. This is followed in Year 8 with the study of the economic world, extreme weather, coastlines and population growth. In Year 9 pupils will continue to consolidate their Geography skills through the study of natural hazards, coast and rivers and the living word.
At KS4 pupils follow the AQA Geography GCSE course building on their studies from Year 9. They study three core areas from year 10 to year 11. Students who have opted for Geography study three core areas, living with the physical environment, challenges on the human environment and geographical applications involving a field work study. Aspects covered include natural hazards, physical landscapes in the UK, the living world, urbanization, the economic world and resource management.
