The Geography department sees its distinctive contribution to be related to stimulating within the students an interest in, and a sense of wonder about, places. Geography helps students to make sense of a complex and dynamically changing world.

Students look at where places are, how places and landscapes are formed, how people and their environments interact, and how a diverse range of economics, societies and environments are interconnected. It builds on student’s own experiences to investigate places at all scales, from the personal to the global.

We would encourage all students to spend time at home reviewing their learning and trying to work through any misunderstandings or areas of difficulty, before then discussing them in school with their teacher.

The following links will help students to find information and other learning resources to support their learning:
