In addition to a rich, real world relevant curriculum delivered by engaging staff, we provide various opportunities for students to develop their geography outside of the classroom.
At Key Stage 3, students undertake local fieldwork to explore the factors affecting microclimates.
At Key Stage 4 and 5, students take part in two days of fieldwork at Blyth Beach and Ouseburn as part of their GCSE and A-Level qualifications.
We also run an annual residential field trip to Patterdale in the Lake District each February, which is open to our Year 9 and Year 12 students.
For all year groups, there are opportunities to partake in international fieldwork to Iceland and Sicily (new for 2024).
