Geography

“Geography is all around us.

It is about the real world, right now.”

Geography is the study of the Earth’s people, places, landscapes and environments. It mixes the arts and the sciences and bridges the learning gap between many other subjects e.g. History, B&V, Science, Maths, English and ICT.

We aim to encourage every student to develop a understanding of the world around them. We want all students to have pride in their work and take responsibility for their own learning. We promote the development of transferable skills which can be valued beyond the walls of the classroom

Students have the opportunity to engage which a wide variety of learning resources and styles. For example, students develop their problem solving and researching skills by using ICT, fieldwork and diagrams, internet, maps, videos, newspaper articles, photographs and books.

Field Work

Fieldwork is a vital component of the geography department at CVCC. It give students a ‘real’ understanding of geography. How else can students appreciate the role of a shingle beach in protecting the coast until they try and run across it! Fieldwork allows them to gain new experiences and develops their team work and skills in data handling and problem solving.

Fieldwork in geography takes a variety of forms from day trips at KS3 to residential visits at A level. We are also planning a trip to Iceland for 2017!

Locations include:

  • The Lake District
  • South Devon
  • Dawlish Warren
  • Cheddar Y12

Students in the Lake District in 2015
