Geography is the study of the earth’s landscapes, peoples, places and environments. It is, quite simply, about the world in which we live. Geography is unique in bridging the social sciences (human geography) with the natural sciences (physical geography).
Geography puts this understanding of social and physical processes within the context of places and regions – recognising the great differences in cultures, political systems, economies, landscapes and environments across the world, and the links between them. Understanding the causes of differences and inequalities between places and social groups underlie much of the newer developments in human geography.
Geography provides an ideal framework for relating other fields of knowledge. It is not surprising that those trained as geographers often contribute substantially to the applied management of resources and environments.
Year 7 pupils study the following topics over the course of the year. Geography is taught in Form Groups and students have two Geography lessons per fortnight.
During Year 7 in Geography we have a particular aim to develop students’ skills of independent enquiry, creative thinking, self-manager and effective participation. Homework tasks are intended to support students in the development of these areas where appropriate.

In Year 7 students have one lesson of Geography a week. Homework is intended to extend and develop students’ knowledge and understanding of the topics covered during lessons. Homework will be set for students once every two lessons and more substantial homework will be set over a four-week period.
