Welcome to the Geography Department
“You can travel the seas, poles, and deserts and see nothing. To really understand the world you need to get under the skin of people and places. In other words, learn about Geography. Michael Palin.
At The Polesworth School we have a dedicated team of teachers who are passionate about teaching Geography and work hard to enthuse our students about our dynamic and ever-changing subject. Our team consists of Mrs Rutherford, Mrs Hockridge, Mr Tench, Mr Reece and Mr Reynolds.
Throughout Year 7 to 13 we study current issues that affect both the human and physical world around us. During all key stages, students gain a detailed understanding of how people and the environment interact through studying exciting and relevant topics such as Plate Tectonics, Population Issues, Settlement, Development, Natural Hazards, Coasts and Rivers among numerous country studies.
