Geography

Geographers have a unique viewpoint combining political and economic aspects with an understanding of the physical processes. Geography develops the ability to combine scientific principles with economic awareness, environmental concern and an appreciation and tolerance of peoples’ attitudes and values.

We live at a time when events and changes in one part of the world can rapidly affect people and environments in other parts of the world. Economies, environments and cultures are linked across the world as never before. Citizens of the 21st century will have to understand these global interconnections and interdependencies in order to maintain and improve their economic and social well being and to minimise damage to the environment.

Geography looks to the future and will prepare your son or daughter for the world of the 21st Century. It is an essential contribution to education for life.

Leehurst pupils receive a rich and varied Geographical education from an early age right the way through to GCSE level. We promote the values and range of experience that stems from the GCSE and filters down through the rest of the curriculum.
