Team Leader: Mr P Stephenson
Above all we wish to develop interest in places around the world and the desire to seek out and visit them. We aim to maintain and stimulate interest and curiosity and aim for pupils to acquire knowledge and understanding of the terminology, skills and techniques specific to geography both inside the classroom and through fieldwork.
By studying geography pupils gain a sense of location, knowledge of places and respect for different cultures and empathy for others in similar or different societies. They become aware that the actions or attitudes of others, who use manage or make decisions about their physical, economic, social, political and cultural environments can affect the landscape.
Geography pupils soon begin to appreciate that geography is dynamic and changes rapidly every day. New ideas and methods lead to new interpretation and explanation of the World around us.
