Case Study Revision on Developing Answers

Remember: It is important to know specific facts and figures for case studies so that you can give yourself a chance of gaining a top level 3 answer. However, it is often forgotten that if you do not include three developed ideas in case studies then you can not even get beyond level 2, even if you know all the facts and figures about a particular case study.

Shape the Future Competition

We gave our Year 8 students the chance to have their say on the new global strategy for development from 2015 and decided to enter the Shape the Future competition.

Our students worked extremely hard, both in Geography lessons and in after school sessions to review the Millennium Development Goals and come up with their own goals. This was our winning entry that has been entered into the competition.....



We would like to thank all of the students that were involved in the competition, including the Year 10 students that acted as mentors. You will be rewarded with certificates and prizes after the Easter Holiday. Well done, you were all fantastic!!! Fingers crossed! :)
