In Geography there is an emphasis on learning concepts and skills through a sense of place.

In Year 7, students study the local area, including a fieldtrip. They also study the UK, Ghana and Europe and tropical rain forests.

In Year 8 students cover weather and climate, extreme weather and farming in the UK.

In Year 9 students study globalisation, mega-cities, and shanty towns. The key stage concludes with a field trip to Exeter.

We follow OCR B in Year 10 and Year 11, and at AS  and A2 level the AQA specification.
