Geography

Geography is the study of the earth and the people in it. Geography develops knowledge of places and environments throughout the world, and at St Albans we aim to provide a curriculum that is both stimulating and rewarding. This might be from learning about the area in which we live to studying how a hurricane can impact on many different countries. We investigate the earth, its people and study the features of the earth. Importantly, through Geography, we develop a range of useful skills such as map reading, data collection, ICT and problem solving and take the skills forward to GCSE and A-Level.
