At Grove our students experience a wide, varied and balanced Geography curriculum, with an even balance of Human and Physical Geography. The Geography curriculum is relevant, topical and thought-provoking which motivates and enthuses Grove students. All Grove Geographers have the opportunity to reach and exceed their full potential academically and are also equipped with essential life-long learning skills, in particular having a strong sense of confidence, ambition and resilience. Grove Geographers use their geographical skills and knowledge to explore and protect their world and to be able to question and debate key political issues that impact the world they live in, whilst becoming responsible citizens.
Our curriculum will ensure all geographers will have an appreciation for the world they live in and a deeper understanding of how their actions can have an impact on the people and places around them. Students will have a drive and passion for finding out about the world and its people, as well as having a keen interest and inspiration to travel, in order to deepen their knowledge and understanding. Indeed, we enrich our curriculum through a range of field trips, visits and other extracurricular activities, including The Duke of Edinburgh Award, that all contribute to students developing strong independent learning skills, both within and outside of the classroom, and becoming critical and analytical learners. We foster enthusiasm for our discipline and subsequently prepare our students for further education and potentially careers in related fields.
