“ Geography is the subject which holds the key to our future. It is a living breathing subject, constantly adapting itself to change. For me Geography is a great adventure with purpose.” Michael Palin
Geographers are observers and analysers of the world around us. Our courses encourage pupils to think about both physical and human environments and current global issues. We equip pupils with skills to gather, process and analyse so that they can suggest, discuss and communicate solutions that prepare them to be the future custodians of this planet.
We are a busy, active and creative department. Passionate about the environment and equipping our pupils to understand and appreciate how their decisions impact other people and places, now and in the future. We work hard to get out to see and explore new environments that will inspire. Geography comes to life when it is experienced and we aim to give all pupils at all level opportunities to learn outdoors.
