Curriculum » Geography
The Geography Department believes that Geography is an essential ingredient in the development of our students as global citizens. In an age where our world is becoming a global village, understanding and appreciation of this world is now more important than ever before. We want our students to be prepared for the world within which they will work and to be provided with information that will allow them to make informed decisions as global citizens.
Students are expected to be punctual, well organised and to bring their books and the appropriate equipment to each lesson. Students are expected to achieve their full potential. A positive learning environment is maintained in the classroom and students are expected to follow rules to ensure this environment is not compromised. At the same time we encourage students to use their initiative and plenty of opportunities are provided to allow pupils to express their individuality both in the classroom and in their work. Respect and consideration are key values enforced in the learning of environment of a Geography classroom, both towards the teacher and their peers.
The Geography Department at Hayes is led by a team of dedicated and enthusiastic subject specialists including
We strive to continuously update our subject knowledge and use recent world events within our classroom teaching. As a result Geography is an extremely popular subject - year on year, we have a large uptake of students at GCSE and A level. All teachers have Geography as their first and main subject and so the Department has a vast amount of experience and expertise both in terms of subject knowledge and the school ethos. Our philosophy is to ensure all our students reach their full potential and we commit ourselves to fulfil the needs of all our students.
