Coverage is mapped to both the KS3 Programme of Study and the AQA GCSE specification, so you can be sure that the course delivers a varied and relevant scheme of work designed to provide the perfect preparation for the increased demands of AQA GCSE.



Support for embedding a deep understanding of geographical skills, including fieldwork, is integrated throughout. Dedicated Skills Focus units provide extended practice on particular skills that students often find challenging.

Carefully structured and progressively challenging activities on each spread help build a strong knowledge base and consolidate understanding. Challenge activities promote independent research and provide stretch.



Specially designed to support the teaching of a two-year KS3 and written with reference to the 2018 examiner reports, you can be confident that this course reflects a real understanding of what is required for success at GCSE level.



Answers to all activities are included in the Teacher Handbook.
