Curriculum

Geography

The Geography Department at Goldwyn School aims to stimulate pupils' interest in and deepen their knowledge and appreciation of the earth's landscapes, peoples, places and environments. Pupils study a wide range of current events and issues including plate tectonic hazards, river landscapes, weather patterns, locations around the world, and also the travel and tourism industry. We seek to stimulate pupils' interest and curiosity by encouraging them to think for themselves, recognise that many of the issues we study are not as clear-cut as is often suggested and open there minds and experience new traditions and cultures.

Our main aim is to give as many opportunities for pupils to develop important skills and personal qualities such as understanding of maps, use of ICT, presentation and team work. In years 7, we travel around the globe looking at different countries and see the differing ways people live their lives, as well as also looking at the main human and physical geographical landscapes that are found there. In Year 8, we start looking at a number of different process that occur around the globe, such as rivers, landscapes, and volcanoes and earthquakes. At the start of Year 9 they beginning working towards their BTEC Level 2 First Award in Travel and Tourism, which will take them all of the way to the end of Year 11, looking at the different types of travel and tourism, tourist destinations at home and around the world and also any issues which may affect the travel and tourism industry.
