The world in which we live is likely to change more in the next 50 years than it has ever done before. Our role in that change is more important than ever. Geography is a subject about now and the future. The Geography department at Oldbury Wells is a forward thinking department that is committed to delivering a curriculum that provides pupils with key knowledge and understanding, but also develops skills and allows students to challenge their future role and place in the world.
The Geography curriculum at Oldbury Wells provides a good balance between human and physical themes. This is reflected in our choice of exam specifications at both GCSE (Edexcel A Specification) and at A Level (Edexcel). Whether or not pupils decide to continue their studies into Key Stage 4 or 5, we aim to develop learners who can make links between places, people and the environment both inside and outside of the classroom.
