Key Stage 3

The KS3 curriculum aims to introduce students to the different types of geography- environmental, human and physical through a variety of units of study.  Additionally, we teach them a range of transferable skills that they need in order to succeed in geography and can also be applied across the curriculum. This includes practical experience investigating the school microclimate and the changes along a river on the River Tillingbourne.
