Geography

We aim to provide the students at Wigston Academy with a topical, challenging curriculum designed to equip them with an understanding of local, national & international issues, which shape their lives now and in the future. We aim to introduce them to the awe and wonder of the world, to enable them to understand how people are living and changing where they live, for the better and worse. We also want our students to understand what it means to live in a globalised world. We hope our students have a strong sense of social and environmental responsibility. We aim to produce students who are inquisitive and have developed the skills needed to work independently and collaboratively to be able to carry out research, analysis and presentation of information in a variety of forms. Students will leave in Year 9 with a lifelong interest in the world around them.
