Welcome to the Geography Page




At Moor Hey we seek to: 

  • Stimulate pupils’ interests in their surroundings and in a variety of physical and human conditions of the earth’s surface.
  • Foster pupils’ sense of wonder at the beauty of the world around them.
  • Enhance pupils’ sense of responsibility to the world and its people around them.


We aim to make Geography an enjoyable learning experience by

  • Studying a range of people, places and environments.
  • Researching the location of places and environments.
  • Studying Human and Physical geography processes.
  • Appreciating different scales – from personal and local to national and global.
  • Studying how economic, social and environmental factors affect issues.
  • Carrying out geographical inquiry- skills to plan the investigation, to collect, record, display and analyse the information.

  • Using a range of resources, including maps, atlases, photographs, satellite images, text and ICT.

  • In EYFS, Key Stages 1 and 2, Geography is taught alongside History in a topic based format. Pupils will complete a Geography topic in one half term and then a History topic the next half term.

  • In Key Stage 3 pupils have one 45-55 minute Geography lesson each week.

    In KS4, Geography is taught through ASDAN Award and finished by the end of year 10.


To ensure that pupils have a wide knowledge of the world around them, and to have skills that will support them in the future lives. 

Year 10 went on a countryside walk for their ASDAN Award
