Our Geography department believes that the study of geography enables our pupils to understand the relationships between people and their environment and so develop a caring attitude towards the environment. A range of research activities allows our pupils to gather relevant evidence facilitating effective debate on a host of human and international issues such as natural disasters, climate change, population change, development and industrialisation.
