Vision and Intent

The overriding intent of humanities at the Boulevard Academy KS3 and KS4 Geography Curriculum is provide an ambitious and broad programme of study. One that promotes student enjoyment and engagement, provides the platform for students to succeed and to exceed expectations. One that ensures every child is valued and encouraged to achieve their potential, and, more importantly, that prepares all students for life in modern Britain, so that they can be aspirational, successful, independent and well – rounded citizens.

What’s on the bookshelf?



In Year 7 we learn about the Normans and the lead up to the Battle of Hastings! Why not try Stormin’ Normans from the Horrible Histories series?

Horrible Histories book

In Year 8 we learn about the British Empire and what saw the fall of it! Pick up The Vile Victorians: Cruel Britannia. 

Horrible Histories book2


In KS4 we learn about World War I and we highly recommend 1914-1918: The History of the First World War by David Stevenson as this book is amazing at going over key battles and events.


In KS4 we also look at the rise of Hitler. Hitler by Ian Kershaw is a fantastic biography about that journey.
