Key Stage Four
At Key Stage 4 students currently follow the AQA Syllabus. An essential part of the course remains fieldwork, although the assessment of this has changed and will be in the form of exam rather than coursework. In recent years this has included a study of two contrasting local environments, urban change in Ipswich and coastal processes at local sites. Both are undertaken during Year 10.
The Department comprises two full time and one part-time specialist teachers of Geography. Within the Department there are a wide selection of resources which include core texts and e-learning packages supported with a variety of supplementary materials; visual materials in the form of video and DVD and various maps and photographs. ICT forms an essential part of the course throughout Key Stage 3 and 4.
