In the Geography Department we develop an understanding of the dynamic and interconnected world of the past, present and future.

Geography at Shrewsbury House aims to inspire pupils to understand the world around them, whilst showing them their place within it and fostering values of global citizenship. The Eco Committee raises awareness of issues of environmental sustainability in and around the School and on a global scale. ‘Geography in the News’ is a focus throughout our studies and pupils are encouraged to take an active interest in current affairs to support their learning in the classroom. Boys develop skills to analyse and interpret data sources, form opinions on geographical issues and experience fieldwork. During Year 8 boys undertake a project that explores the ‘Changing Face of the UK High Street.’

The study of Physical and Human Geography topics enable pupils to develop an awareness, empathy and balanced view of our ever-changing world.

The department runs field trips to locations such as West Wittering and Kingston town centre for data collection and coursework.
