Geography

 

‘Geography underpins a lifelong ‘conversation’ about the earth as the home of humankind.’  Geography Association

At Blaise, we believe that a high-quality geography education inspires in learners a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. A geographical perspective is essential for learners to understand the greatest challenge of our times – climate change - and to enable them to do something about it. Teaching will equip learners with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As learners progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the framework and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
