Babington House School Curriculum

Senior

Co-ed aged 11 - 16



Geography

Geography is an active and engaging subject at Babington House School. Teaching and learning is based upon a successful mixture of skills, knowledge and concepts with a strong emphasis placed on students developing the independence and leadership of their own learning.

At Key Stage 3 all students study Geography as part of the curriculum.  Typically this would include the investigation of the difference between Weather and Climate whilst also understanding the microclimate of the school, the processes affecting the coast and the impact of flooding.  The curriculum is current and focuses on real life events in order to help students make sense of the world around them, for instance studying the processes involved in the creation of disasters in the news and the impact and responses of the human population.

Geography Fieldwork is not just an important part of studying geography, it offers a wonderful way of seeing different environments, and a chance for personal development.  At Babington House we visit the coast, rivers, marshes, and shopping centre's and local settlements in order to bring classroom teaching to life. We have had great academic success with students entered in exams with the AQA exam board.
