Inspire - Transform - Succeed


Geography is the study of Earth’s landscapes, peoples, places and environments. It is, quite simply, about the world in which we live.  As Geographers, students will learn about earthquakes and volcanoes, rivers, the global fashion industry and weather amongst others.  Many different locations will be studied, for example Brazil, Kenya, Antarctica and several locations in Europe, with field trips to consolidate the learning taking place within the classroom.


Geography uses many different skills and students will be encouraged to be active participants in each lesson learning skills such as teamwork, problem-solving and decision-making to more practical skills of map reading and grid references.
