Geography at Tenison's
Curriculum Intent for Geography
Our curriculum in Geography seeks to develop a sense of place, help students make sense of their community and to gain a better appreciation of the variety of physical and human conditions of Earth. The subject extends students’ interest and knowledge beyond their immediate experiences using images and information to help them understand people and ideas that they acquire through different facets of life. We explore with dignity different themes and concepts based on different case studies, and offer opportunities for students to share their own identities, taking pride in their own and learning from one another.
The Key Stage 3 curriculum offers a rich and diverse investigation into local, national and global geography, with a focus on sustainability and globalisation, and how that has impacted different players around the globe and modern Britain. We build on their Key Stage 2 learning and encourage students to be independent learners, empowering them with the skills they need to acquire the wisdom for their GCSE.
The Key Stage 4 curriculum for Geography follows the EDEXCEL B specification. Global Geographical Issues, UK Geographical Issues and People and Environment Issues are all focused upon. A constant theme throughout the students learning here is also sustainability and climate change. We have hope that all students are able to thrive in Geography, not only academically but, as 'Global Citizens', so that they leave school with a greater understanding of self, other cultures and the impact their actions have on the wider world so that they can let their light shine.
