Aims & Objectives
Geography teaches us to investigate the human and physical processes that shape our dynamic world, our aim is to stimulate awe and wonder about the world to inspire students within our lessons. We believe that studying geography enables students to develop a range of skills which provide a strong basis for life long study.
In geography students will become:
Independent learners who can communicate effectively and respect different countries and cultures
Successful learners, who are motivated to investigate, challenge and debate their opinions effectively with others.
Problem solvers who are enterprising and can problem solve suggesting appropriate routes for enquiry
Geography could take you anywhere! The range of skills which geographers acquire is much sought after by employers and geographers have access to a wide variety of careers. Geography provides experience of a range of general skills including written and oral presentation, teamwork, problem solving, numeracy, computing, graphics, mapping, survey methods and research skills. Geographers are recognised as adaptable people who can be easily trained, while their broad understanding and range of approaches to the world and its problems are relevant to many different jobs.
