Why Study Geography?

Geography is taught using contemporary methods of instruction and delivery. Staff adopt an enquiry approach to the teaching of geography, equipping pupils with the knowledge and skills of investigation, critical-thinking, problem-solving and communication. As a result, pupils are able to foster attitudes that will assist them to participate as active and informed citizens in our global society, and to appreciate and apply the concept of sustainability.

Pupils studying geography are encouraged whenever possible, to apply their classroom knowledge to the real-world. Field trips enable first-hand opportunities to study a variety of topics: GCSE students study coastal features and management at locations such as Sidmouth or Dawlish Warren, alongside exploring regeneration and quality of life in a city such as Exeter. In addition the department has previously run international trips, such as to Iceland, where students were able to explore it’s unique geomorphology and seismic activity.

The Wegener Society is our school geography society named after the famous German meteorologist and geophysicist, Alfred Wegener. During his lifetime he was primarily known for his achievements in meteorology and as a pioneer of polar research, but today he is most remembered as the originator of the theory of continental drift. The society welcomes guest speakers to talk on a variety of geographical topics.
