Subject information

As a school we value the role that Geography has to play in helping our pupils to become well-rounded adults who can contribute positively to their local and global community. As part of this, they will tackle difficult and topical issues which will give the pupils the opportunity to discuss and debate social, moral, cultural and spiritual questions. We will also promote the value geography as an interesting and enjoyable subject and the vitally important role that Geography plays in understanding how the world works in an increasingly globalised society and economy.  Knowledge, application and skills are at the core of our 21st century curriculum. We will support the pupils to develop the essential employability, enterprise & transferable skills in information technology and data/resource analysis and interpretation through the curriculum content and how it is taught and delivered.
