Geography

An understanding of the historical influences aims to explain the evolution of current environments and helps our students to appreciate how their actions will not only have an impact on the school community but also the future of their local, national and international communities.

Course Description.

‘…geography students hold the key to the world’s problems’, (Michael Palin)

At the University of Birmingham School, we aim to develop a sense of discovery for our pupils, creating an awareness of our local community and how the area is interlinked with the world at regional, national and international levels. An understanding of the historical influences aims to explain the evolution of current environments and helps our students to appreciate how their actions will not only have an impact on the school community but also the future of their local, national and international communities.

The aim is also to develop and questioning research skills. Pupils at KS3 are encouraged to challenge and question information and to supplement their lessons with additional reading. At GCSE, pupils will explore the world, the issues it faces and their own place in it. Students will make Geographical decisions through enquiry-based learning that encourages an investigative approach to each of the key ideas.

At all stages, students will have the opportunity to conduct fieldwork to reinforce and enlighten learning in the classroom. Outside speakers also enrich our lessons. We are extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to work with the University of Birmingham’s School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences Department. It has a renowned history for international excellence in research and teaching.
