GCSE Geography

Curriculum Overview

We want our students to have a strong sense of time and place, to feel they belong to wider world community, to understand how their local actions can have global consequences. We want them to feel empowered to make positive choices in their lives to help protect and enhance God’s creation, in relation to both nature and culture. We want them to be able to make changes within their communities by understanding the mechanisms of democracy, to become positive citizens with viewpoints that are empathic, tolerant and reflective. We want the students to be able to learn from past mistakes and consider independently a positive future for themselves and the global community. 

How will I be assessed?

During their GCSE study, students will complete end of unit tests as well as mock exams in both Year 10 and Year 11.

In the exams, there are 2 written papers, one on Physical Geography and another on Human Geography.
