Our Vision: The vision of Nailsea Geography department is to deliver an outstanding Geography education which will stimulate students’ curiosity and fascination about the world in which they live.

Students will be equipped with both knowledge and skills about diverse places, people, resources, and natural and human environments, thereby enhancing our student’s sense of responsibility for the care of the earth and its people.

The curriculum that we offer at KS3 is topical and relevant and aims to create enthusiastic and passionate geographers well placed to continue their studies into key stage 4. Numeracy and literacy skills are embedded throughout the topics and field work follows the enquiry process preparing students for fieldwork at GCSE.
