Geography

Geography is about fostering 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 study where places are, how places and landscapes are formed, and how people and their environments are interconnected. We aim to make lessons interesting and challenging. We are also passionate about using the ‘outdoor’ classroom and each year students take part in field trips to places in the local area and in the upper school to places abroad.
