Curriculum Maps and Overviews



Geography is staffed by a team of four well-qualified graduate teachers. We pride ourselves on the importance of every child in our care and seek to develop their potential and skills. We believe in the importance of fieldwork and the practical application of Geographical skills. We endeavour to provide a set of courses well-suited to the needs of our individual learners.

As a department we have chosen AQA syllabus in both GCSE and  A Level.
