Geography is the study of earth as the home of people.
An understanding of the natural world and what's in it is a source of not only a great curiosity but great fulfilment.
Why Study Geography?
It would be helpful for pupils to have a prior knowledge of geography through experience of the GCSE, but this is not a requirement. Rather those pupils considering taking geography at A level should be inspired by the human and physical environment around them and wish to develop their understanding of our changing world.
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.
