Geography


What will my child's learning be like in Geography?

Geography pushes students to reach their potential whilst enjoying a varied and interesting range of topics. Students learn reasoning and decision-making skills through classroom based and outdoor practical activities. They are encouraged to work as both individuals and as teams. There are opportunities for practical fieldwork in each year group. Geography is a subject where students are expected to retain information and revise factual content, then analyse this content to make judgements.

What are we aiming to achieve in the Geography department?

Geography helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. Our students are encouraged to develop a better understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it.
