"The world belongs to me because I understand it" - Honore de Balzac
A high-quality geography education should inspire students to have a curiosity and fascination about the world.
Year 7 - Location and map work. Ecosystems. Ice Age, Weather and weather hazards, coasts with a fieldwork assignment.

The intent of our geography curriculum is to create a positive climate in which students are given a variety of opportunities to achieve excellence.
The Key Stage 3 curriculum follows the National Curriculum programme of study. Our curriculum has a range of topic areas to fulfil the national curriculum requirements but still incorporate time to explore current issues in the news both for physical and human geography. The focus of year 7 and 8 geography involves the study of places at both regional, national and global scale. Our curriculum inspires students to become �global citizens� by exploring their own place in the world, their values and their responsibilities to other people. Students at RHA learn how their lives could affect people on the other side of the world. At the end of KS3, students should possess the ability to make geographical decisions about the way they lead their life.
