Geography at Bedlington academy is a constantly evolving subject which always takes into account current issues and events in the world at any given time. In addition to a real world relevant and rich curriculum, delivered by engaging staff we always ensure students have the opportunity to develop their Geography outside of the classroom.
We run a monthly Geography competition which is open to all of our students, we had some really creative entries last year and look forward to seeing what this year brings.
We run an annual residential field trip to Patterdale in the lake district each February which is open to our year 9 and year 12 students.
We ensure there are local fieldwork opportunities as part of the lesson curriculum in key stage 3.
Key stage 4 complete their fieldwork on a day a Blyth Beach and a day at Ouseburn.
Key stage 5 have a number of fieldwork opportunities over their two years of study.
There are also opportunities to partake in international fieldwork to Iceland.
