Geography is concerned with the physical processes that have shaped the landscape and aims to develop in students an informed sense of place, an understanding of the relationships between people and their environments and help them make sense of a complex and dynamically changing world. It explains where places are, how places and landscapes are formed, how people and their environment interact, and how a diverse range of economies, societies and environments are interconnected.

It builds on students’ own experiences to investigate places at all scales, from the personal to the global. Geography inspires students to become global citizens by exploring their own place in the world, their values and their responsibilities to other people, to the environment and to the sustainability of the planet.

Student’s will develop skills in questioning, investigation and learn how to think critically about issues affecting the world and people’s lives, now and in the future. Fieldwork is an essential part of Geography and students’ will learn to think spatially and use maps, visual images and new technologies, including geographical information systems (GIS), to obtain, present and analyse information.

Our aim is to provide students with the knowledge they need to place local, national and global events in context and evaluate them critically. We try to stimulate an appreciation of the variety of landscapes throughout the world and to open students' eyes to the beauty of landscape features and environments.
