Geography

Welcome to the Geography Department

Mission Statement

 

 

 

Geography provokes and answers questions about the natural and human worlds. It develops knowledge of places and environments throughout the world, an understanding of maps and a range of investigative and problem solving skills which will help prepare students for adult life. Geography is also a focus within the curriculum for understanding and resolving issues about the environment and future development. In studying geography students encounter different societies and cultures. This should stimulate them to think about their own place in the world, their values and their rights and responsibilities to other people and the environment.
