Geography is the study of the World, how it works and how we interact with it. Throughout KS3, the AGS Geography Curriculum endeavours to provide pupils with a foundation across both physical and human geography. We begin by building on the foundations set at KS2 whilst understanding pupils have varying geographical experience. Each year throughout KS3, pupils experience a range of geographical themes, while studying a continent or region of the world, and developing their fieldwork skills. Pupils build on key knowledge and skills already acquired and revisit these in future topics through a different contextual lens. We endeavour to empower our geographers for the demands of their next step at GCSE and A-Level. We aim to inspire pupil’s curiosity and passion about Geography and empower them to form their own opinions about global issues.
At KS3 students study a range of physical and human geography themes, alongside continent studies, where they can apply these theories to real examples.
