The geography department seeks to stimulate students' curiosity, interest and enjoyment in the world around them. It cultivates a sense of location, knowledge of places and a respect for differing cultures. It encourages open, enquiring minds that are aware of contemporary issues. The teaching of geography builds on students' existing knowledge of places, concepts and skills. A broad curriculum encompasses contemporary topics within the subject as well as the more familiar traditional geography topics.

Extended Learning Opportunities (Homework)
In all year groups, extended learning will normally be set once per fortnight. The purpose of all extended learning in the geography department is to consolidate and extend what has been learned in lessons and to prepare for future lessons. The nature of the extended learning tasks will vary according to what is being studied, but common tasks include research work, specific questioning or aspects of project/case study work. In Year 11, most extended learning will focus on case study knowledge, key skills and examination preparation.
