Geography should be approached through the study of real places and we aim to develop this study through a wide variety of learning activities and experiences from the classroom to a wealth of supportive fieldwork. Through an appropriate range of enquiry-based questions the pupils are encouraged to ask questions, examine evidence, search for patterns and attempt explanations of the world in which they live. Emphasis is on practical activity and fieldwork. We see the subject contributing to teaching and learning across the curriculum, notably in the vital and topical area of environmental education.

In Years 5 and 6, children take part in an annual 3-day residential visit to Braeside, a study centre in Wiltshire as part of the History curriculum which is a highlight of every academic year.
