Geography

Welcome to Geography

Geography is about the amazing world around us – the study of Earth’s landscapes, peoples, places and environments. ‘Geography enables us to understand change, conflict and the key issues which impact on our lives today and will affect our futures tomorrow’ (Chief Inspector David Bell).

In Year 7 we investigate the amazing world we live in and develop the skills we need in geography. In Year 8 we develop those skills and apply their understanding of geography to a range of themes. Our course gives students access to modern world issues at a range of scales, from local to global.
