SUBJECT VISION
Being able to ‘think like a Geographer’ allows us to understand our place within the world in which we live. Explaining how interactions, processes and places shape the world. Through outdoor learning, students will get the opportunity to encounter geographical concepts and complete enquiry-based work to encourage them to love the subject and become ‘earth readers’, even when not in the classroom. By doing so, they will demonstrate the habits of resilience, innovation, employability and mindfulness through a challenging and interesting curriculum. As a result, developing high quality critical thinking learners with deep rooted world subject knowledge.
