Geography at St John’s

We help students make sense of the world. Pupils learn about the world’s physical and human environments. Geography tackles the big issues: environmental responsibility; our global interdependence; cultural understanding and tolerance; commerce, trade and industry.  The world in which we live is likely to change more in the next 50 years than it has ever done before. Geography explains why, and helps students prepare for those changes.

  1. Self – We want our pupils to be aware of their place in the world and the influence they can have on the local environment and how they have a responsibility to understand and improve the world
  2. Others – We want our pupils to have a cultural understanding and tolerance of different countries and communities around the world, their resources, and natural and human environments
  3. Wider world – We want our children to have a greater understanding and knowledge of global issues in the world and to help pupils prepare for the future changes that will occur in their lives
