Geography
Geography students hold the key to the world’s problems.
Michael Palin

Geography at the Alice Smith School is a fascinating, inspiring and relevant journey of discovery.

The subject matter is contemporary, interesting and concerned with real global issues. Students learn about their effects on the environment, both locally and globally and how to minimise the negative effects. This helps them to understand the inequalities that exist due to political and commercial decisions which will in turn enable them to become responsible citizens of the world - and perhaps leading the way in roles which can make a positive difference to our global environment.

Students learn about the contrasting patterns and change in natural and human environments, what causes them and most importantly it is the perfect subject to initiate curiosity and find out why.  This enquiry approach helps to develop independent and reflective learners, recognise the benefits of collaboration and become increasingly creative thinkers. Their ability to read maps, use innovative technology and grasp the nuances and patterns of data makes them skillful and employable. Geography comes into its own when students apply their learning to the real world during fieldwork trips using the latest analytical equipment. We are fortunate to be located so close to some of world’s most beautiful natural coastlines, marine wildlife and rain forests in addition to contrasting examples of the developing and developed world.  Recent trips have included the study of rivers in the tropical rain forests of the Genting Highlands and A Level students studied the impacts of coastal erosion in Port Dickson.

The Geography department comprises four fully-qualified, experienced, specialist teachers who teach Key Stage 3, GCSE and A Level. Both students and teachers research is supported by a well-resourced library, a range of periodicals and online subscriptions to a wide range of subject-related data and resources.
