Curriculum Aims:

  • Create synoptic learners who are able to see the connections between different aspects of the subject, including the interrelationship of human and physical processes and concepts. Learners will develop detailed schema and outline the application to a range of settings from within the subject and across other curricula. Their fieldwork skills will be developed through exposure to contrasting locations at all key stages.

  • Create informed learners who have a global awareness built on a foundation of secure locational and place knowledge. They will be able to successfully articulate their knowledge and viewpoints both verbally and through extended writing, bringing in supportive examples from various contrasting locations.

  • Create decisive learners who are able to form an opinion and justify their viewpoint in a range of contexts. They should be critical of information and able to discuss accuracy of quantitative information as well as the potential bias of qualitative summaries.
