Geography

The Geographers at Dukhan English School aim to:

- build an extraordinary learning community that goes beyond the curriculum
- foster a spirit of enquiry and continual improvement
- draw on the rich variety of experiences and views to support a coherent and collegiate approach to teaching and learning
- enable each person’s continued personal and professional development

For pupils we seek to engender:

- knowledge and understanding of the Planet Earth and its peoples
- lasting awareness of the world around us
- sensitivity and empathy towards all others
- tolerance and independent thinking
- preparedness for an active citizen’s role in a changing world

In our department every person’s opinion counts and is valued. The pupil voice is encouraged and listened to.

At KS3, students study a variety of topics which we hope will be both informative and stimulating. Students are assessed at the end of each topic, and in addition they sit a major assessment covering of all the work they have studied to date during that academic year, plus two staging post assessments at key points in the academic year.
