Geography

Our Approach:

Geography is the study of the human and physical environment. We regard it as an important subject in that it encompasses and unites scientific, mathematical and language skills. As an integrated discipline, Geography examines both physical and human processes over space and time. We believe that Geography helps us to understand our complex world.

Geography therefore includes the study of:

  • spatial patterns and trends: the location of people and places in the world;
  • similarity and difference: how environments and lifestyles compare and the reasons for similarities and differences;
  • movement: how and why people, goods, water, land and air move and change;
  • Planet Earth: land, water and air;• human settlement: where people live and why;
  • human activities: what people do, how the environment affects them and how they affect the environment;
  • interdependence: the links between climate, vegetation, wildlife, resource distribution, and human settlementand activity; and
  • change: the changing nature of people and places.

Boys are taught an appreciation of the sustainable use of the environment in which they live. Skills such as reading, interpreting, drawing skills and the translating of data and mapped information into the written word are taught.

We incorporate modern teaching techniques and technologies alongside formal teaching practises. All forms of media are constantly used for articles on current world events to encourage the awareness of consequences through higher order thinking.
