In line with the whole school vision, the department embraces the skills of listening and oracy. It underpins everything we do and encourages the students to speak confidently and passionately, listen attentively and become inspired global citizens that will shape their future world.

In Year 6, pupils spend half the year investigating rivers and the country of Tanzania (with whom with have an international partnership at Dumila Primary School). Pupils will understand the physical processes that create the environments as well as how humans interact with these environments.

Moving into KS3, pupils have 4 hours in Year 7 and three hours a week in Year 8. Skills, knowledge and understanding develop throughout the year as the links and connections between the different topics are inter-woven as we prepare the students for High School.

Lessons are high-challenge and engaging and encourage students to think and work independently.
Where possible, we aim to get ‘outside’ and use the natural world to reinforce and inspire the learning from the classroom; making use of the school grounds, the town and local rivers systems.

Geography at St Egwin’s introduces the pupils to the amazing world around us. Whether it is the local exploration of the area we live in or the global impacts of volcanism, there is something for everyone to discover.
