Geography

Geography is taught to all pupils in Year 7 – 9, where lesson content covers a wide range of both the physical and human aspects of the subject. By the end of Year 9, students will have taken part in at least two trips, one of these involving surveys of the local area.

All students have the opportunity to study Geography through to GCSE, at which point it can form part of the English Baccalaureate. The subject is becoming increasingly popular at GCSE level, with extra-curricular learning (such as field-trips within the UK and a newly-formed Geography Club) also enhancing students’ progress.

Geography is also popular at A-Level, with a greater emphasis being placed on independent study.  Field-trips are also incorporated for Sixth-Form geographers, recent visits being to Dorset and Snowdonia. Geography is a very well-resourced department, all classrooms having ICT facilities.
