Our ambition for geography education:

We want our students to think and act like geographers. We want all students to have a level of competence that will enable them to succeed in the subject at secondary school and beyond and instil in them a love and curiosity of history. Our curriculum is sequenced to ensure that geographical skills are revisited regularly and these are built on and developed. We use a cross-curricular themed approach to fully immerse students in their learning.

How our local context is weaved into the curriculum

We are fortunate to be able to make geographical links to the local area. We carry out studies of the village and Andover.

 Schemes of learning

We have created schemes of learning to ensure that our geography curriculum is effectively planned and sequenced. Schemes are based on our progression in skills and knowledge.. They provide teachers with the key objectives, prior learning, future learning, key vocabulary, assessment indicators, common misconceptions, and ideas for teaching and gathering evidence of learning they need to help us ensure that our geography curriculum is implemented effectively and produces students who can demonstrate proficiency in the subject. Learning is driven by key questions and will be taught as a cross-curricular theme. Teachers are responsible for the integration of other subjects. However, they should make clear the subject focus in each lesson.
