Building upon the knowledge taught in Key Stage 3, in Key Stage 4 our pupils further explore, construct and investigate many areas of geography. This includes applying geographic knowledge from multiple areas of geographic study. For example, both understanding what a physical process is and how or why it occurs, and then how it impacts communities and their responses to it. There is further development of geographic skills including map work, data interpretation and the introduction of fieldwork. Alongside this, students are encouraged to consider contemporary issues (climate change, renewable energy sources, migration) and their future impact on our planet.
