The Geography  Curriculum

Southgate geography department wants students to develop an awe and wonder of the world around them.  By exploring human and physical geography students will develop a knowledge and appreciation of their place in the global sphere. In doing this our students are equipped with the knowledge and skills to be successful global citizens.

At Key Stage 3 students will   understand   how the world works and how it can and will change in the future. They will learn about places that are outside of their own experience and develop their understanding of the world’s diversity of environments, peoples, cultures and economies. This develops thinking skills and cartographic and statistical skills.

By the end of KS3 students have the skill sets to make the transition to the requirements of the GCSE.

At KS4 geography students study both human and physical geography in class and through fieldwork.

The challenge of natural hazards,

The skill developed progressively from year 7 are revisited and applied in more challenging geographical contexts.


As a result they leave with a qualification that spans both the humanities and the sciences .
