Geography

What is Geography for at Meridian High School?

Geography gives pupils the opportunity to practice and develop inquiry and enjoyment of the world, from a local to a global scale. 

Why does Geography as a subject matter?

Geography has long been an essential part of any inquisitive mind, but recently the designation of Geography as one of the English Baccalaureate subjects has even further elevated geography as an important subject within schools curriculum. Geography provides young people with the opportunity to explore and learn about their world and the physical and human processes that happen within it.

What does Geography help young people to achieve?

Students of geography learn a range of important skills and this is why geographical study, to any level, is regarded so highly by further education establishments and employers.

Geographers problem solve, make decisions, work in teams and as individuals and plan, carry out and reflect on findings. The transferable skills taught in geography are essential life skills and students of the subject are well prepared for the world of employment and for life because of their study.
