‘The study of geography is about more than just memorizing places on a map. It’s about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures that exists across continents. And in the end, it’s about using all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together’

Barack Obama

At Northbourne, we strive to inspire our pupils to become curious about the world around them. Whether it is physical, human or environmental geography, pupils will be encouraged to question, investigate and challenge. We aspire for this inquisitive approach to local, national or international issues to continue throughout their education and into their adult lives.

Now more than ever, sustainability and caring for our environment is a fundamental facet to a child’s education. At Northbourne, we aim for our pupils to become thoughtful, responsible and considerate towards their environment in order to ensure changes are made to help improve the world in which we live. During their time in school, they make an active contribution to protecting and improving our fragile world.

We aim for our children to appreciate the diversity of people, places and cultures and our geography curriculum will expose the pupils to as broad a variety as possible.  More information about how we do this can be found here.
