Return to Our Curriculum


At Alban City School, Geography aims to promote children’s curiosity and greater understanding about the world and their place within it. Geography enables children to develop knowledge and skills which are transferable to other curriculum areas and link to social, moral and cultural development. It is an investigative subject which encourages children to ask and answer questions in order to develop an understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills.

At Alban City, our intent is to inspire in children a fascination and interest in the world around them; to gain a knowledge of diverse people and places and an understanding of human and physical processes. As children progress through the school, their growing knowledge about the world helps them to deepen their understanding of the formation and use of landscapes and environments and the interaction between human and physical processes, enabling them to comment on how human activity impacts our world.
