The Geography department aims to open our students’ eyes to the world around them.  We encourage and develop skills that promote discussion, enquiry, argument and analysis and cover a wide spectrum of worldwide and current issues.  Students are taught in mixed ability classes in all years and regular assessment and feedback ensure we can give students immediate and effective support throughout their academic year. Standards and expectations are high.  We are proud of the choice and specialism we can offer all our students as their progress into their KS4 curriculum too.
