Our Geography Curriculum 



We believe that geography helps to provoke questions and provide answers about the natural and human aspects of the world. Children are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it.


The geography curriculum at St Nicolas enables children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas and which are also used to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Geography is,

by nature, an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills.


Aim for pupils:

  • To provide a high-quality geography education which inspires in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.

  • Lessons equip 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 learning provides the tools and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
