Geography at Edward Worlledge aims to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Our topics aim to equip pupils 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 pupils move through the school they study increasing more distant places and the lives of people living there, comparing them with their local area and daily life.
