Welcome to the geography department.

We are a small department and are comprised of caring staff who strive to ensure all students achieve their potential. We work hard to make lessons fun and relevant to today’s world. Our courses give students access to modern world issues at a range of scales, from local to global. We make use of modern resources e.g. web based and GIS (geographical information systems) and carry out a number fieldwork trips across all Key Stages.

Overview of the Year for Geography at Key Stage 3

Year 7 and 8 Geography at Outwood Academy Danum offers students the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of contemporary issues in a fun, exciting and interactive way.

Each unit that students study has been chosen because of its relevance to our understanding of and interaction with the twenty first century world.

Students are encouraged to ask questions and interpret a wide variety of sources of information and our students develop a diverse range of skills throughout the course. Students learn to work collaboratively and develop confidence in debate and discussion, in presenting to their peers and in using resources like images, maps and data to investigate issues and places.
