Welcome to Geography

Within Geography, we aim to help our students develop an interest and sense of wonder about our ever changing world as well as their place in it.

All students at Wadebridge School study Geography in Year 7 and 8 with the option of continuing the subject at both GCSE and A Level. Students will explore and investigate a range of places, topics and issues about our ever changing world, both in and beyond the classroom. We aim to develop learners that are curious, ask questions and discuss issues. We also want students to develop independence in the way they learn. 

Geography is important because it stimulates an interest in and a sense of wonder about places. It helps young people make sense of a complex and dynamically changing world. It explains where places are, how places and landscapes are formed, how people and their environment interact, and how a diverse range of economies, societies and environments are interconnected. It builds on pupils' own experiences to investigate places at all scales, from the personal to the global.

Geographical enquiry encourages questioning, investigation and critical thinking about issues affecting the world and people's lives, now and in the future. Fieldwork is an essential element of this. Pupils learn to think spatially and use maps, visual images and new technologies, including geographical information systems (GIS), to obtain, present and analyse information. Geography inspires pupils to become global citizens by exploring their own place in the world, their values and their responsibilities to other people, to the environment and to the sustainability of the planet.
