Geography

’An understanding of the natural world and what's in it is a source of not only a great curiosity but great fulfillment.’’

David Attenborough

At Chobham Academy, Geography plays an important role in ensuring that exploration is at the heart of our curriculum. Students have at least two lessons a week, in which they delve into the human and natural phenomena that occurs around them locally and globally. Through investigations, data analysis, decision making and writing scientifically our students become attuned to identifying issues and to calculating solutions to these.

The skills employed within Geography are seldom compartmentalised, rather they are fluid, crossing over into many disciplines such as the sciences, mathematics and other humanities subjects.  In studying Geography at Chobham Academy, our students mature into well rounded beings who are socially, economically, politically and environmentally aware.

Key Stage 5

Students study AS/A2 Level Geography with Edexcel.

In Year 12 students study two units. Unit 1 is titled Global Challenges, this explores a range of human and physical phenomena at a range of scales. These include topics such as ‘World at risk’ where students examine how natural, context and chronic hazards interact with human processes. ‘Going global’ is the second topic studied. Here, students analyse how movements of people, money, goods, services, aid and information occur globally, whilst evaluating the significance of these on human life.

In Unit 2 (Geographical Investigations) students start to employ their primary and secondary fieldwork skills. They explore how varied data collection methods are used to monitor issues with areas in decline (Rebranding Places) and areas at risk from coastal processes (Crowded Coasts) in order to suggest appropriate management methods for the issues identified.

In Year 13 students study two units; Contested Planet - Unit 3 and Geographical Research - Unit 4. In Unit 3 students develop their understanding of major global concerns such as ‘Threats to Biodiversity’, the ‘Development Gap’, ‘Superpower Geographies’, ‘Water Conflicts’ and ‘Technological Fixes’. Within Unit 4 students are given the option to choose a research topic from the following list: Tectonic Activity and Hazards, Cold Environments – Landscapes and Change, Life on the Margins: the Food Supply Problem, The World of Cultural Diversity, Pollution and Human Health at Risk and Consuming the Rural Landscape – Leisure and Tourism. Students are given the chance to show off their research skills, data analysis and evaluation, decision making and scientific report writing.

ILT Tasks: KS5 students are given regular, rigorous ILT tasks. This may range from research of new content to essay writing and exam preparation. Students are set ILTs everyweek.

Extra Curricular

Students take part in regular field work, and have the opportunity to participate in a range of activities, linked to global issues throughout the year.

Currently, students are engaged in a mapping project - designing an app to geo locate E20 - our postcode!
