In Geography, our pupils develop progressive knowledge of where places are and what they are like, an understanding of the ways in which places are interdependent and interconnected and how much human and physical environments are interrelated.  Through memorable experiences and learning activities, our pupils discover and build on, an extensive base of geographical knowledge and vocabulary.  They develop fluency in complex geographical enquiry, an ability to apply questioning skills and use effective, analytical and presentational techniques.  Independently and collaboratively, our pupils are encouraged to develop the ability to reach clear conclusions, develop a reasoned argument to explain findings and express well-balanced opinions rooted in very good knowledge and understanding about current and contemporary issues in society and the environment.  They are encouraged to develop significant levels of originality, imagination or creativity as shown in interpretations and representations of the subject matter.  Pupils’ lifelong passion for - and commitment to the subject, along with a real sense of curisity to find out about the world and the people who live in it, is fostered by fieldwork and other geographical skills and techniques, including the memorisation of interesting and important facts.
