Geography

In Key Stage 3 Geography at LHEA we want to engage students with the world around them. We want them to gain an appreciation of the natural environment and an understanding of how we can create a sustainable world in the future. Pupils will develop skills in data presentation, graphical presentation, creative writing and analysis. The Key Stage 3 curriculum in Geography allows pupils to learn a wide range of interesting topics, including ‘Weather and Climate’ in Year 7 looking at temperature, rainfall and weather forecasting and ‘Ecosystems’ in Year 8, looking at different ecosystems including rainforests.
