We wish to inspire students’ curiosity and interest to explore the world and
its people and to further develop a love of learning. We intend to equip students
with geographical skills to develop their knowledge through studying places,
people and natural and human environments. We hope to deepen their
understanding of the Earth’s human and physical forms and processes.
Geography, by nature, is an investigative subject. Through our teaching, we
wish to provoke thought, questions and to encourage students to discover
answers to their own questions through exploration and research to enable them
to gain a greater understanding and knowledge of the world and their place in it.

In order to foster students’ curiosity about the world, interest and creativity,
we are enthusiastic about Geography and encourage students to explore and ask
questions. In Years 7 and 8, students study through topics and theme based learning, covering one or two topics per term, following the National Curriculum.

Students will have developed the geographical knowledge and skills to help them
explore, navigate and understand the world around them and their place in it.
Children’s knowledge and skills will develop progressively as they move through
the school, not only to enable them to meet the requirements of the National
Curriculum but to prepare them to become competent geographers in secondary
