The world in which we live is likely to change more in the next 50 years than it has ever done before.
Geography explains why, and helps to prepare you for those changes.
Geography tackles the big issues:
- environmental responsibility
- our global interdependence
- cultural understanding and tolerance
- commerce, trade and industry.
Accommodation comprises three main teaching rooms, all of which are equipped with interactive whiteboards. Students have access to a variety of texts and also have access to fieldwork equipment. ICT is an integral part of the geography course and students have access to ICT rooms.
The geography department is staffed entirely by specialists, four full time members of staff. Each colleague makes a significant contribution to the work of the department as a whole, and all play an active part in the development of policies, schemes of work and resources.
The transferable skills which geography fosters are an asset in the complex world of employment today. Geography is about the future and encourages flexible thinking.
The Department offers a wide range of fieldwork and we aim to take out most year groups on at least one day’s fieldwork a year. We currently offer the following fieldwork:
- Year 7 Lulworth Cove Field Visit
- Year 8 Kew Gardens Field Trip
- Year 9 Natural History Museum Visit
- Year 10 Urban Area or Rivers trip
- Year 12 Barton on Sea, Boscombe and Southampton Fieldwork
