The Geography Department is busy, innovative and full of enthusiastic geographers, both students and staff. The Department offers a practical, enquiry-based approach to learning, with the aim of encouraging students to become geographers by making use of our excellent resources, fieldwork and study visits. A range of field trips to interesting locations ensure that students are able to apply and enhance their classroom knowledge.
The staff have a wide range of interests within the broader subject and the Department is active in local and national geographical organisations. A Geography Society is run by and for IB and A Level students, which invites guest speakers from Higher Education and industry, as well as putting on geographical quizzes and film nights.
Geography is studied by nearly all to GCSE, with around 70 pupils opting for the subject post-GCSE. All students make frequent use of our wide-ranging interactive resources. However, we do stress that direct experience of being geographers through fieldwork is integral to all studies.
