Learning at Crawshaw Academy


The Geography curriculum at Crawshaw aims to inspire our students with a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.

Geography will 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 students' progress, their growing knowledge about the world should 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 framework and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time. It allows students to be inquisitive and critical in an increasingly complex world where our choices and actions may have repercussions for people and communities locally, nationally or internationally. Geographical themes help learners become more aware of the wider world and to have a sense of their own role as a responsible global citizen.

GCSE Geography

The GCSE Geography course enables students to deepen and broaden their understanding of the physical and human processes that affect our planet. The AQA GCSE course we deliver is entirely exam based with no controlled assessment. There are three exams that students will take in the summer term of Year 11, one Physical Geography and one Human Geography paper worth 35% respectively alongside a Geographical Skills paper worth 30%. Students will have to partake in two days of fieldwork to prepare for the Geographical Skills paper with recent destinations including the Holderness Coastline and York. In addition, there is also an optional four day visit to Sorrento, Italy, which runs every two years, and is open to GCSE Geography students.
