What will I Learn?

Geography is a fascinating and varied subject which helps pupils to understand more about the world in which you live. It develops a number of different skills including describing and analysing data, map skills and encouraging attitudes and views. Our aim is to promote a love of Geography, both Human and Physical. All pupils study Geography in Years 7 and 8, after which it becomes an optional subject.

Fieldwork is an essential part of the course and includes an urban and river trip locally to build upon pupils’ studies.
