Students at Cliff Park learn Geography because it is about the world we live in, its people & interactions, how the world is changing, and the impacts of human actions.

Geography is a focus within the curriculum for understanding and resolving issues about the environment and sustainable development. The subject helps us make sense of current and historical events, whether of economic, political, or social importance. It is an important link between the natural and social sciences and provides students an opportunity to encounter different societies and cultures. The world in which we live is likely to change more in the next 50 years than it has ever done before. Geography explains why and helps to prepare us for those changes. Geography tackles the big issues of environmental responsibility, sustainability and our global interdependence.

Throughout both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4, students are encouraged to become better critical thinkers to understand the issues facing the world in which we live. At Key Stage 3, students experience a range of physical, human and environmental geography topics to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. Students have an opportunity to leave Cliff Park with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with an understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. At Key Stage 4 students follow the Edexcel Geography B course. The key themes are Global Geographical Issues, UK Geographical Issues, and People and the Environment.
