Geography

The Geography department at Cheadle Hulme High School has a large range of resources and offers a safe and secure learning environment for all of our students. We have four Geography classrooms and a central office with dedicated Administration 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 our human and physical environments.

At KS4 we follow the OCR B Geography course. At A Level we follow OCR Geography. We have 258 KS4 students and 42 KS5 students. Successful uptake of the subject has seen the department continue to develop students and prepare them for University life.

Geography teachers at Cheadle Hulme High School are all involved in planning and delivering pedagogy sessions for our Associate Teachers. All members of the department are trained as Subject Mentors and we are proud of the guidance our Associate Teachers receive.
