Geography has never been more relevant for study than in today’s complex and dynamic globalised world. Throughout their time at the college, the Geography Department seeks to develop in our learners a sense of wonder at the world around them and foster an understanding of what makes it function. We do this by finding links between the physical and human worlds and by examining how humans deeply affect the world around them.
Geography is taught in three dedicated teaching spaces, both equipped with full audiovisual teaching facilities including interactive whiteboards, data projectors and other pupil-level ICT facilities. Learning outside the classroom is also key to success in Geography so opportunities to engage in studies outside will be taken whenever possible.
Local area fieldwork is undertaken at Key Stage 4 for the geographical investigations module of the GCSE syllabus, with residential fieldwork in year 13 for all Geographers.
