Key Stage 3 Geography

Geography at Key Stage 3 aims to develop pupils’ understanding of physical and human patterns and processes, at a range of spatial and temporal scales.  Pupils build upon their locational knowledge of places at different stages of development, within and between countries, focusing on the impacts of socio-economic processes, such as globalisation and urbanisation.  Pupils consolidate their understanding of the significance of development gap issues by linking this to the challenges of managing physical processes, such as a range of natural hazards and threats to the natural environment.
