We encourage our pupils to develop an understanding of the world, to take stock of how humans are affecting their environments and, equally, how people are increasingly affected by natural events.
From map reading skills to explaining physical and human features and processes, our pupils learn to interpret information at local, national and global levels. They can even predict consequences.
Through research and presentation, our pupils gradually form their own views on geographical issues. We draw on personal experiences, holiday adventures and current affairs as these often provide relevance and great insight in discussion and debates.
We enjoy exploring the wider world with trips focusing on settlement and coastal processes allowing plenty of time to practise fieldwork skills.
