Why study Geography?
Our goal is to enable students to enjoy the physical and human world around them. We’re committed to nurturing academic habits within a curriculum that layers geographical knowledge and embeds skills.
We foster confidence within students to apply the knowledge they have gained to real-world situations and challenge them to confront social, economic and environmental issues that surround them. We aim to realise within our students the responsibility of being proactive local and global citizens.
