Learning & Achieving Together

Geography

Our vision is to:

  • Foster a spirit of enquiry, openness and continual improvement
  • Enable each person’s continual personal and professional development
  • Nurture links with other departments and schools locally, nationally and globally.

For students we seek to engender:

  • Knowledge and understanding of the world and its people
  • Independent thinking
  • Preparedness for an active citizen’s role in a changing world
  • An enthusiasm for geography as a challenging and relevant academic subject that they wish to continue studying at GCSE, A level and beyond.
