The Geography department ensures that all pupils leave St George's with an appreciation and understanding of their immediate environment. Full use of the school grounds are made in order to study topics, varying from 'Autumn Leaves' to 'Microclimate'.
As well as studying in the class room pupils are encouraged to undertake field work and are always given the opportunity to discuss interesting places they have visited in the UK and abroad during the school holidays.
Whilst every effort is made to keep geography lessons exciting, interactive and visual we also use more traditional teaching methods to make sure pupils have a detailed knowledge of the world. We use maps, globes and textbooks to put some theory behind their experiences and topics fall generally into the following thematic topics, tectonic processes, geomorphological processes, settlement weather and climate (including weather hazards) and economic activity. These subjects are studied in each of the year groups and become more complex as pupils progress through the school.
All pupils leave St George's ready for whatever senior school geography throws at them.
