Geography

We take students across the globe, widening their knowledge and giving them a thirst for more while maintaining a balance between physical and human geography.  In response to today’s rapidly evolving world, students study highly relevant topics, such as changing rural and urban environments, with an emphasis on contemporary issues such as waste management and sustainable cities.

Challenge & Extension:  Students keep abreast of current issues through regular reading of news articles and subject specific periodicals and books. They are also encouraged to watch programmes such as 'Coast Australia' (BBC2) and ‘Caribbean’ by Simon Reeve so that they consider issues from a range of perspectives and can challenge pre-conceived ideas.  

Students attend regional lectures and quizzes organised by the Geographical Association and have also entered the annual national ‘Young Geographer’ competition, achieving runner-up position from 400 entries.

Visitors to St Gabriel's quickly recognise that this is no ordinary school. Parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils. We offer girls the opportunity for a seamless journey from Nursery through to Sixth Form, with our boys leaving us at the age of 11 for their senior schools.
