Excellence through challenge and initiative

Geography

Geographical issues are always making headlines in the news! The geography department at Ercall Wood strive to support our students in becoming responsible and well-informed global citizens. We aim to stimulate students’ curiosity and interest in the natural world by covering engaging topics such as climate change, natural hazards, global economies and debate topical issues such as plastic pollution and deforestation. Our students achieve this by benefiting from all the opportunities geography has to offer such as field trips, topical debates and access to contemporary knowledge linked to current events. Studying geography enables students to explore their own place in the world and builds on their own experiences to investigate places at all scales, from the personal to the global and including the past, present and future.
