Our KS3 topics give students an inspiring, engaging and challenging curriculum. There is a diverse range of content which students are encouraged to think about the big picture, and their role as a responsible citizen in the wider world. There are three thematically-based topics for each year at key stage 3, constructed from some of the key concepts our passionate department identified from years of study in geography. These topics are sequenced to develop an understanding of the different perspectives of geography, from local, national, to international, and how all of these scales interconnect through the processes of physical and human geography.
