To inspire students to have a curiosity and fascination about the world. 


Our curriculum aims to inspire a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. 

We believe our curriculum equips students with the 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.

Along the journey, students will hopefully consolidate and extend their knowledge of the world’s major countries and their physical and human features, understanding how geographical processes interact to create distinctive human and physical landscapes that change over time.
