“Geography is a great adventure with a purpose.” Michael Palin
We believe Geography is a catalyst to develop students who are culturally aware, and sensitive to the lived experiences of groups and individuals worldwide. By engaging in learning about our planet, pupils develop a desire to broaden their horizons and experience new places outside of their local area.
By developing ‘thinking geographers’:
- Encouraging students to discover new places, and develop a genuine curiosity and fascination about the world around them, and to appreciate how our world is changing.
- Discussing geographical processes and making links to consolidate learning and make it meaningful.
- Developing a sense of place so that they can predict future developments in both the human and physical world.
Geography involves the study of contemporary issues on a variety of scales. Through their investigation of a wide range of people, places and environments, students will learn about the geographical patterns and processes and the political, economic, social and environmental factors affecting people and places and ultimately, have a strong understanding of these different types of relationships.
“Geography is learning about the things all around you. It helps us to understand how we can help change the world for the better.” Year 7 student
