Geography

HBAED_Image_Gallery_09

Our curriculum develops students’ contextual (locational), propositional (theoretical) and procedural (skills) geographical knowledge so that they may think geographically in the world around them.

We live in a world of amazing beauty, infinite complexity and rigorous challenge. Our Geography curriculum opens the door to this dynamic world and prepares each one of our students for the role of global citizen in the 21st century.

Through geography, students appreciate how places and landscapes are formed, how people and environments interact, what consequences arise from our everyday decisions, and what a diverse range of cultures and societies exist and interconnect. It teaches students to care for our planet and to make a difference in society. It will provide both academic knowledge and challenge as well as the Active Citizenship skills needed to give students the Master Key to their futures.

For more information about our Geography Curriculum please contact Director of Humanities Jonathan Maserejje: J.Maserejje@harrisdulwichboys.org.uk
