The Geography department at Kingsmead offers GCSE Geography following the OCR syllabus, taught in mixed-ability groups.
At A Level we follow the Edexcel syllabus.
The department undertakes a variety of extra-curricular activities to enhance and enrich learning including fieldwork and GCSE and A Level revision classes.
The department also strongly encourages the exploration and application of the subject beyond the classroom through independent study, research and educational visits including trips to London Docklands and the Thames Water Barrier in order to help contextualise text-based learning.
We are developing expertise in ICT and have developed a range of learning activities linked to ICT to support and enhance teaching and learning. GIS software is used throughout the key stages to develop fieldwork presentation skills.
