To make sense of the UK and the world, so that we can stand in any circle as equals and appreciate human impact and potential.
At STA geography is ambitious in that students are prepared for excellence at GCSE and beyond through consistent exam style questions, regular assessment and testing of concepts that underpin our physical and human world. Examples are picked from across the world and consistently updated to represent geography of the world today.
Geography is often a subject rooted in questions and developing enquiring minds is one of key principles. We encourage students to consider sustainable development and their own citizenship as central to the world, discussing how actions have consequences and regular encouraging students to think about influencing and changing the world by developing and learning from great enterprising individuals who shape our world.
The geography department intent is built around education for sustainable development, the majority of lessons should encourage students to have knowledge of the social, economic and environmental choices that shape our decision making. Students should feel they are global citizens who are able to explain and challenge the world they live.
Global citizenship and sustainable develop as well as understanding cultural differences are core areas of our curriculum. All students will be expected to become global citizens who understand that economic, social and environmental challenges have a range of solutions and stakeholders and to understand these, is the first step to making the world a better place.
