We give our pupils a sense of their place in the world through an understanding of a range of both physical and human geography topics and map skills. 'You should never have to rely on the satnav…'. Understanding our past and present geography can help pupils form opinions about their future and enable them to think through environmental challenges.
Challenge & Extension: Pupils keep abreast of current issues through regular reading of news articles and subject specific periodicals and are encouraged to discuss issues and form their own opinions from a recommended reading list and other media. They attend regional lectures and quizzes organised by the Geographical Association and have entered the annual national ‘Young Geographer’ competition, achieving runner-up position from 400 entries.
