Key Stage 3

In the lower school (Years 7-9) students are broadly streamed in geography lessons, which along with small class sizes ensures that all students are able to work at a suitable pace and make good progress.

We aim to teach a broad and stimulating curriculum in Key Stage 3, focusing on local, national and global concerns.  Geography field trip on the beach

There is a good balance between physical and human environments.

All year groups have the opportunity to venture further afield during their study of Geography. Year 7 visit Hurst Spit, Year 8 carry out fieldwork at Lulworth Cove in association with the Science Department, and Year 9 take part in a residential trip to Swanage.  Geography field trip - measuring the flow of the riverGeography field trip - catching fish from the river
