In Year 7 students are introduced to the idea of Geographical skills and key Geographical knowledge. The KS3 curriculum is sequenced to allow students to develop their knowledge and understanding of key Geographical and processes and concepts in addition to learning about the place specific locations which are identified within the Geography KS3 NC. These skills are deepened and built upon as the KS3 Geography curriculum is sequenced across the three years of study.
