Journeying to the most extreme locations on Earth

Geography education begins locally before journeying to the most extreme locations on Earth to nurture a passion, curiosity and respect for the natural world and its inhabitants; both human and animal.

In a wonderful world where human impact is increasingly influencing its future, our children enjoy lessons that inspire a positive, proactive attitude to caring for the planet, as well as a desire to continue learning about its endless geographical wonders. Physical and human processes, their impact on the world, the importance of diverse landscapes and environment are all explored as children develop their geographical knowledge and skills of enquiry.


Bringing geography to life

We have worked collaboratively to select clearly sequenced topics that fulfil the requirements of the national curriculum whilst immersing the children in inspiring and fascinating geography to promote a love for the subject. Each year group has a topic that  builds on learning from previous years. This ensures children develop geographical enquiry, whilst gaining a breadth of knowledge to help them understand the diversity of human and physical geography on Earth.

Our pupils understanding begins in their local area, and builds on a journey around the world, ensuring key continents are explored. They also explore other areas of the planet – looking beneath the sea at the role the reef plays in keeping oceans healthy. They virtually take a journey to the hottest and coldest areas of the planet, and understand how life survives there. Our pupils recognise the force and strength of nature when they learn about volcanoes and earthquakes.

Using collaborative and practical approaches to learning where possible, we utilise a range of technology to support the acquisition of  strong knowledge and understanding in Geography.


Making a difference, leading future change

Children understand the importance of the positive impact their generation can have on the world, and the responsibility to protect and preserve. Alongside the Eco Science curriculum, and through fun and creative lessons, we prepare and inspire children to make a difference and lead future change.



Welcome to our outstanding primary school. Founded on the principles of Fun, Creativity and Achievement, ours is a very special school where children are encouraged to thrive socially and academically.


Year on year


Alongside academic achievement, this gives every child at Preston Hedges School the opportunity to fulfil their own unique potential. The result? Children at our school consistently outperform their peers – both regionally and nationally – and many go on to win places at the country’s most prestigious secondary settings.


Happy, Confident Learners

Inspired by the philosophy of Fun, Creativity and Achievement.

Curriculum content is rigorously planned to ensure all children engage in lessons and consolidate their learning with clear intentions.

Throughout the school, each year group’s learning is documented and displayed through celebratory Floor Books where QR codes and final pieces of work demonstrate each topic’s implementation, progressive journey and learning impact.
