Geography Vision Statement
Watching ‘Blue Planet 2’ and the outcry this has caused about plastics in our worlds oceans should inform everyone to the relevance of geography as a subject in our modern society. Knowing how important the study of this highly creative and academic subject is, students at Heyford Park have the opportunity to study all aspects of it in great depth and detail from Key Stage 3 to A level. In Key Stage 3, students will have two lessons of the subject per week. They will be able to delve into the world of physical and human geography; studying concepts and processes at both a local and international level.
Students will have the option to pick geography as a specialist GCSE subject at Key Stage 4. They will be encouraged to question and challenge as well as justify and evaluate schemes and projects put in place to improve the quality of life of people around the world.
It is our aim that students will leave Heyford Park Free School with a deeper understanding of: the processes that affect the world around them, how people shape the places in which they live, and how they have the power to control and influence the future of our planet.
