Department Overview

The Geography curriculum at Barking Abbey gives pupils powerful knowledge where they are taken beyond what they already know in everyday life. We study a range of physical, human and environmental topics which transforms their ability to understand and engage with the world.

At the end of their schooling our pupils are able to use the knowledge they have gained and apply it to new settings so they can analyse, make informed judgements and participate in global issues.
