Geography Key Stage 3

Geography at Key Stage 3 – Years 7, 8 and 9
At Key Stage 3 we aim to foster pupil’s interest in the world around them and also build a platform for further geographical study. Our studies are based on the British National Curriculum, although we adapt this for use in Kenya and aim to use local and East African examples in our studies whenever possible.
Geography is a compulsory subject in Years 7-9, but we are very pleased that more than 70% of both Year 10 and 11 pupils have chosen to take Geography at IGCSE Level.
