    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 department has a suite of rooms within the Newton Block; one room being dedicated to the use of computers. 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 is an integral part of the subject 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.
