Introduction to the Subject

We aim to create global citizens equipped to assess received opinion and make independent judgements, who are aware of the past, present and future of the world around them.  Through questioning, investigation and critical thinking, Bolingbroke geographers are exploring their place in the world, as well as their own values and their responsibilities.

They are investigating issues affecting the world and people’s lives, in the past, now and in the future. They are given the tools to make sense of a complex and dynamically changing world, at all different scales.

Pupils learn where places are, and about their different landscapes and climates.  They learn how places and landscapes are formed, and how people and their environment interact in both positive and negative ways. They are learning how a diverse range of economies, societies and environments are interconnected

Each department has a 'DNA', that is to say, our vision for that department.
