‘The study of geography is more than just memorising places on a map.  It’s about understanding the complexity of our world.’ 

Barack Obama


Atwood believes that a high quality geography education will inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.

Our intention for Geographical enquiry within the Atwood Curriculum is to:

  • Teach and equip pupils with the knowledge about diverse places, people and resources
  • Teach pupils about natural and man-made environments
  • Teach pupils about the Earth’s key physical and human processes

Children at Atwood will gain a growing knowledge about the world and understand more deeply the interaction between physical and human processes, and the formation and use of landscapes and environments.  They will learn how to communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.
