The Altius Alliance is keen to offer places for the SCITT 2017-18 cohort.
We have a large range of resources and offer a safe and secure learning environment for all of our students. We have three Geography classrooms, with access to IT rooms and a set of iPads. We have a central office with dedicated Admin Support. We have a total number of five members of staff. Across KS3 students have specific Geography lessons taught by subject specialists. Throughout these subjects we study a range of units from both the Physical and Human Geographical disciplines. Students experience Physical topics such as Rivers, Coasts and Weather along with Human themes including Development, Economic Activity and Population. We use units such as Africa, The Middle East and Asia as a forum for introducing and developing student awareness of the interaction between Human and Physical environments.
At KS4 we follow the OCR A Geography course. At A Level we follow OCR Geography. Successful uptake of the subjects has seen the department continue to develop students and prepare them for University life.
We welcome trainee teachers and have assisted with the training and development of several trainees. We work closely with Manchester Metropolitan University and Manchester University and as a school have been involved in School Direct since 2012, when the scheme first started. Last year we had two Associate Geography Teachers under the SCITT programme.
