Geography Department Page

Geography provokes and answers questions about the natural and human worlds, using different scales of enquiry to view them from different perspectives.

It develops knowledge of places and environments throughout the world, an understanding of maps and a range of investigative and problem-solving skills both inside and outside the classroom. As such, it prepares pupils for adult life and employment.
