Understanding the world around us is important at any age

At Westbourne we believe that Geography is a fascinating and varied subject which helps pupils to enquire about the environment in which they live. Our studies develop a number of different skills including describing and analysing data, understanding map and encouraging attitudes and views. Our aim is to promote a love of Geography, both Human and Physical. All pupils study Geography in Year 7 and 8 and 9 after which it becomes an optional subject. And at every age we believe that a practical approach is both fun and informative, which is why we offer a full programme of field events, bringing Geography to life.
