We've never found any weapons or drugs during our random searches - the fact that we actually conduct these searches helps to keep it this way. https://t.co/KaN1q07TNM

From this week we are doubling the number of random searches of students’ bags, jackets and lockers. It’s crucial we keep up an active and visible deterrent so students don’t make daft decisions and bring in something which would endanger our community.

Geography

Exam board:  AQA

Geography is compulsory in Year 7/8, then an options subject from Year 9.  However the vast majority of students will take either Geography or History to the end of Year 11 as it is an EBACC subject.

At Key Stage 3, it is essential students are equipped with the basic geographical skills and content that are needed for GCSE as often Geography is not delivered explicitly at KS2.

At Key Stage 4, the AQA Geography GCSE specification is delivered.

How the course works:

Geography explains why, and helps you prepare for those changes. If you enjoy studying Geography carry on studying it! You are likely to achieve your best results in a subject you enjoy.

Students will have the opportunity to take part in a number of fieldtrips to enhance the issues taught in the geography classroom and make examples ‘real’. All students will have the opportunity to visit the coast to study the processes taking place there, as well as an area of urban regeneration.

Course content/Assessment:

Living with the physical environment:

  • The challenge of natural hazards
  • The living world – desert and Tropical Rainforest Ecosystems
  • Physical landscapes in the UK – Rivers and Coasts

Challenges in the human environment

  • Urban Issues and Challenges – more and more of the world’s population are living in urban areas. What is this and what issues does it cause?
  • - The Changing Economic World - Some countries are rich and others are poor – why is this and how can we change it?
  • The Challenge of Resource Management – Food, water and energy and essential to human development – why is there so much inequalities in the supply and consumption of these resources?

Geographical Applications

  • Fieldwork - Fieldwork is an essential aspect of geography – through two geographical enquiries, you will extend your geographical understanding by relating learning to real experiences of the world.

Geographical Skills

  • Cartographic skills - relating to a variety of maps at different scales
  • Graphical Skills – How can you select and construct graphs to present data?
  • Numerical Skills – How can your skills in statistics help you present and read data?
  • Three examination papers – 1 hour 30 minutes each

    At Key Stage 5, the AQA specification is also delivered. The students will be assessed by three examinations at the end of Year 2. The units studied are:

  • Physical Geography
  • Human Geography
  • Geographical Fieldwork Investigation

Year 1
