Geography

The goal of geography is nothing less than to create an understanding of the vast interacting system comprising all humanity and its natural environment on the surface of the Earth!

Geography should aim to encourage and underpin a lifelong conversation about Earth as the home of humankind. We seek out for pupils to understand how physical and human phenomena are arranged and related. This makes geography distinctive, as a curriculum subject that bridges the sciences and the humanities.

In describing and seeking explanations for the interaction of people with their varied environments, geography has a particular interest in spatial distributions, movements, patterns and in the way places are made.

Our pupils are also encouraged to explore the subject outside the classroom and therefore annual trips are organised to build that knowledge base.
