Geography at Glade Hill

At Glade Hill, we aim to create inquisitive geographers that are able to formulate perceptive questions about the natural and human world we live in. Children are encouraged to develop a deep understanding and knowledge of human and physical landscapes, key physical and human processes, and the great diversity of peoples, places and communities across the globe. In short, we want our children to foster a sense of fascination about the world and their own place within it.


The geography curriculum at Glade Hill has been developed to provide children with the opportunity to learn a balance of key geographical subject knowledge and practical skills. Taking inspiration from our Sparkle ethos, children will learn how to treat their environment with the respect it deserves, and will be encouraged to consider the impact of their everyday actions on the planet. Children will undertake various fieldwork exercises, where they will actively research, record, and interpret data to draw their own conclusions, presenting their findings in a variety of ways.

We want our children to leave Glade Hill with a strong sense of what it means to be a ‘geographer’, having learnt skills that they will continue to use and develop throughout their lives.


In the academic year 2023-24, we invested a lot of money into brand new atlases and globes to be used alongside digital mapping in each year group.
