Welcome to Geography at John Hampden School!
To study Geography is to study people, their behaviour and the environment in which they live. We study a broad range of relevant Geographical Topics – from Forest Areas of the World to How Partite has affected South Africa. Through these subjects, our children develop a strong sense of identity and understanding of their future roles and responsibilities in our ever-changing world. Pupils are immersed in fascinating topics which not only engage and inspire, but help to create independent, motivated and committed life-long learners who understand the complexity of people’s lives, prepared for the road ahead and determined to make a difference. Our Geography is closely linked to our History topics ensuring children gain an insight into past and present contexts – comparing these across the ages. We also ensure our Geography is closely linked to our PSHE topics, for example how we as citizens shape our local or world Geography.
