Geography is the study is the study of the world and environment around us. A subject that is wide ranging, exciting and constantly changing. We look at questions like, why do more people die in earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanoes in poorer countries than richer ones, why the coast is eroding away and why are cities growing in some parts of the world but not in others?
In geography we equip our leaners with understanding and empathy of other cultures, the ability to look at, appreciate, understand and argue differing points of view as well. In addition to this we use practical fieldwork and research skills using real world examples, fieldwork and investigating problems on a local and global scale. Geography looks at our place in the world and how our actions can affect that of the landscapes, people and the environments around us.
The qualification we study for at GCSE is AQA 8035.
