Studying Geography gives pupils the opportunity to travel the world via the classroom, learning about both natural and social sciences along the way. It provides pupils with a holistic understanding of our planet, its systems and how we, as humans, are impacting our world. Pupils learn to appreciate the complexity of our world and the diversity of its environments, economies and cultures. Through Geography, pupils develop an understanding of the global political issues that occur between countries, cultures, cities and their hinterlands, and between regions within countries.
