Subject Vision

At Ivanhoe our aim is that students will be able to understand why the world is the way that it is and make predictions about how it is likely to change in the future. Students will develop an understanding of our global community and how we are connected to the world around us. 
Geography equips students with the knowledge and skills they will need to tackle the social and environmental problems faced by the UK and the world in the 21st Century.

 

Key Stage 3 Objective Statement

In year 7, the focus is on ‘our world’, where students study their local and national geography.  In year 8, students begin to explore our ‘changing world’ through study of development and globalisation. By year 9 students will understand how they can shape the world in the future by studying our ‘challenging world’.
