Our curriculum vision is based around 4 major themes which equips students with the knowledge and understanding to prepare them for their futures as well as studying Geography at A Level and beyond.
The 4 major themes in our vision for students
- Knowledge and Understanding
- Geographical Skills
- Evaluation and Judgement
- Global Interactions
The aim of the Geography Department is to ensure that all students develop an appreciation of how people interact with the environment around them. In simple terms, Geography is the study of where places are, what they are like and what life is like in them.
Our aim in the Geography Department is to help to make students more aware of their global citizenship status. We investigate many issues facing the world today including coastal erosion, the loss of the tropical rainforests, global warming, globalisation and migration and focus on how we can manage these issues sustainably. These issues, as well as traditional geography, are taught throughout the key stages.
- Specialist teaching classrooms
- A wide range of specialist fieldwork equipment
- DVDs and interactive materials to exemplify the topics being studied.

Students will go on a residential field trip to Exmoor National Park for four days, and there will also be various trips during the two years to increase data collection methods.
“Geography lessons are really great! Resources are different and learning is fun! Lessons have a range of activities in them.”
“I am really glad I chose Geography for A level. I find the topics interesting and challenging, and I am really looking forward to the field trips.”
Geography provides varied career paths and a Geography degree would lay a good foundation for jobs such as surveying, accounting, teaching, law, banking and finance and many, many more opportunities!
