Geography

The Geography department is fortunate to be staffed by a team of committed and enthusiastic specialists whose love of the subject has helped to inspire many students across the Key Stages.

Working both in and out of the classroom, our aim is to foster an appreciation and understanding of the diverse world in which we live. Geography teaching, at all levels, is based on themes that investigate physical environments, social and economic activities, and the relationships that exist between people and places. In our teaching, these themes are illustrated through studying a variety of places at different scales, from local to global. Case studies range from the amazing landforms of the Jurassic coastline and the extreme environments of the Arctic and Antarctic to the emergence of China and India as world superpowers. Through these studies, students are encouraged to develop a holistic understanding of environmental systems, together with the importance of sustainability and global responsibility.

Regular fieldwork locations include the local Bath and Bristol area, South Wales, the Dorset coast, and Exmoor as well as visits to Iceland.  Follow the latest trip on @kws_geog.
