Geography is an exciting, awe-inspiring subject which highlights the interconnectivity of every human and physical system on Earth. Geography at Brook Mead Academy sparks curiosity and enlightens the mind of every individual. At KS3, we equip our deserving scholars with sophisticated vocabulary, powerful knowledge, deep understanding, and a wide variety of essential skills. Our ambitious sequence of lessons ensures progression as scholars are encouraged to find links across the curriculum and to develop critical thinking skills which can be adapted to any new context. Each lesson allows Geographers to peer a little deeper into issues, to deliberate a range of informed views and to consider the opportunities and challenges faced across the world. We showcase the full breadth and depth of our vast field. This allows every individual to connect with something which inspires them to become an expert. We lay the strong, future-focused foundations for a fulfilling journey of life-long learning. Brook Mead Academy’s Geographers develop a motivation to participate in society as informed and active citizens who are prepared for our complex and dynamic world.
