KS3 Geography

Our KS3 curriculum is designed to inspire curiosity and fascination about the world, that students can take forward through their lives.  Our curriculum is knowledge rich, with the aim of enriching our students understanding of the world’s diverse places, people and processes.

The aim of our KS3 curriculum is to ensure that ALL students develop a contextual knowledge of place, getting students to think locally at the beginning of the key stage and then broadening that to a global outlook by the end of KS3.

Students will understand the different processes that create different features and landforms around the world, and be able to make links between them in terms of variations over space and time.

Students will develop and become competent in a range of geographical skills, such as the ability to interpret resources such as maps, diagrams and photographs.  They will be able to communicate geographical information through numeracy, as well as geographical information systems.  Students will also experience fieldwork, where they can collect, analyse and communicate a range of data that will allow them to deepen their understanding of the geographical processes.
