‘Geography is a living, breathing subject, constantly adapting itself to change. It is dynamic and relevant. For me geography is a great adventure with a purpose’
Michael Palin – President of the Royal Geographical Society
Geography is taught in mixed ability groups across Key Stages 3 and 4, with the exception of Year 7, where English subject setting has enabled us to develop accelerated learning groups as well as PACE groups with a literacy focus. All students are encouraged to develop their subject knowledge, to write well, to improve their ability to debate and analyse, and to think creatively when demonstrating their understanding of patterns and processes.
