    Mission statement

    To provide learning environments where pupils can develop an appreciation of the world in which we live and examine the meaning of citizenship in a world increasingly characterized by social inequalities at a local and national level.

    The Geography Department

    The department is regarded as a successful well motivated department, with an experienced and well qualified staff. The three members of staff have Geography as their main subject and all have taught up to Advanced Level.

    The department moved into a suite of three rooms within the new Newton Block, one room being dedicated to the use of computers, in the spring of 2007. Each classroom is networked to the school system and makes full use of interactive whiteboards and their usefulness in accessing current information through the use of the internet.

    ICT has been an integral part of the subject for the past seventeen years, and the department have moved forward with new ideas as they become available within schools. Geography Information Systems (GIS) continue to progress, and the use of other specialist applications is encouraged by the pupils.
