Geography

In Geography we live in a world of amazing beauty, infinite complexity and rigorous challenge. We aspire to open the door to this dynamic world and prepare each one of us for the role of global citizen in the 21st century. Through studying geography, pupils begin to appreciate how places and landscapes are formed, how people and environments interact, what consequences arise from our everyday decisions, and what a diverse range of cultures and societies exist and interconnect. We aspire to build on students own experiences, helping them to formulate questions, develop their intellectual skills and find answers to issues affecting their lives.
