Geography helps us make sense of world both from the human and physical perspectives! Geography as a subject has never been more relevant. The recent earthquake and Tsunami of a few years ago in Japan, the credit crunch and affordable housing are topics we see in headlines on daily papers. Each touches on those topics taught at all three Key Stages at The Campion School from the perspective of how the physical world impacts on the human world and vice versa.
Issues we look at include global climate change and acid rain, the growth of cities, the effects of migration on populations and the effects of globalisation and future employment. We look at these issues and how they impact us at a range of scales - local, national and global.
Geography helps us make sense of world and our own place in it! It helps us understand different cultures, both around the world and within our own. Geography helps us understand the need for tolerance and acceptance, and our responsibilities as citizens of the UK. It teaches us the need to be responsible for our environment, both locally and globally.
