Geography stimulates pupils’ interest and curiosity in their surroundings. It teaches an understanding of places and environments, exploring the relationship between the Earth and its people. Our Geography Lead is Miss O’Connor.
Through their work in geography, pupils learn about their local area and compare their life in this area with that in other regions of the United Kingdom and the rest of the world. Through their growing knowledge and understanding of human geography, pupils gain an appreciation of life in other cultures. Geography teaching also motivates pupils to find out about the physical world and enables them to recognize the importance of sustainable development for the future of mankind. Pupils are encouraged to learn by experience and field work is an integral part of the curriculum. We identify ‘golden threads’ in our curriculum which are key issues that are covered throughout the year groups. These are embedded across our curriculum.
In order to inspire and prepare our pupils for the world of work, we want them to understand how learning Geography can be useful to them in everyday life, and in their future careers.
As Geographers our pupils could be:
- A National Park Service Ranger
- A Meteorologist
- A Teacher
- A Climatologist
- An Urban Planner
