Curriculum Overview and Subjects
The purpose of the Geography curriculum at The Howard School is:
- to provide all our students with an understanding of the complex and dynamic world we live in.
- to help students apply knowledge of key physical and human processes to diverse places, landscapes and locations in more traditional themes such as Rivers, Coasts and Population
- to encourage our students to question our complex and dynamic world by navigating more contemporary themes in Geography such as Superpowers, Water Insecurity and Energy Issues.
- to support our students’ understanding of the attitudes and actions of various players towards these future issues.
- to exploit the subject’s relevance to our students through an enquiry-based approach. inquisitive learners, consider their own place in the world and question the world around them. We want to help our students answer these questions.

Key Stage 3
A high-quality geography education inspires in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching equips pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world will help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time. These are our aims at KS3.
