Curriculum Intent

Within geography the students explore key process and concepts which span the human and physical world. They gain a breadth of knowledge whilst also being encouraged to think deeply about links between topics.

Teaching geography should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As our students progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. 

At KS3 our curriculum has the breadth and depth of geographical knowledge, understanding and skills (comparable to that of the National Curriculum) and this enables students to progress to KS4 and KS5.

Literacy skills are embedded within the geography curriculum, the use of tier three language is modelled by staff and students and an integral part of geography lessons.  Students are given opportunities to develop their reading as well as extended writing and comprehension practice.

Studying geography encourages students to reflect on the world around them and how they interact with people and the planet. They are given the knowledge and tools to make conscientious decisions.

For our students at South Wigston High School  there has never been a better time to study geography. Geography is the subject, which opens doors to our dynamic world. Through studying geography we should inspire in our students a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
