Why Study Geography?
Geography 5Geography is the subject that provides students with the skills required for the 21st Century. It provides opportunities to understand and make sense of the world and the people in it. The world in which we live is likely to see more changes in the next 50 years than it has ever done before and Geography explains why this is and helps to prepare you for these changes. At St John Fisher School, we explore social, economic and environmental issues that are relevant at the local and global scale and enable young people to develop as Global Citizens.
