The Geography curriculum design is structured around the teaching of geographical concepts. This ensures that subject knowledge is broken into small, meaningful chunks before being learnt, revisited and applied in a range of contexts across key stages. Geographical concepts are revisited by pupils and staff, ensuring powerful learning links are made. Our Golden Thread of Our Diverse World ensures that learners develop an appreciation for and understanding of real and relevant world contexts for the Geography they learn.
