The aim of the Geography Department is to prepare pupils to take an active and intelligent interest in the world in which they live. The Geography Department is a highly successful department and is staffed by experienced and enthusiastic subject specialists. The Head of Department Simon Ross, is a prolific writer of geography textbooks, some of which have been adopted at Queen's College, and examines for AQA. He has been awarded the Geographical Association’s ‘Gold Award’ for his ‘Essential Mapwork Skills’ book and won the ‘Silver Award’ for an online volcano study aid. Regular lectures are also organised by the Geography Association for both our pupils and members of the local community.
Lessons are taught in three adjoining classrooms, each room having TV/video and networked computers.
