Geography

Geography at De La Salle stimulates a sense of wonder and interest in places and people.  It allows our young people to make sense of a complex and dynamically changing world, addressing current issues, economic change, environmental concerns and social values.  Our students learn where places are, how places and landscapes are formed, how people interact with their environment and how societies and economies are interconnected.  At KS3 we study a wide variety of themes and skills through the UK, Europe, the Tropics, China and Africa, whilst in KS4 we cover a wide variety of case studies during each topic of study.  Geography at De La Salle allows our students to investigate in the outdoors and we offer fieldwork at all key stages which takes place locally, nationally and internationally.

Our fieldwork locations are:

St Helens

Liverpool

Snowdonia

Grasmere

Iceland

Our geographical enquiries encourage questioning, investigation and critical thinking about issues affecting people’s lives in the world today and in the future.  These learning experiences help to build our students' sense of place at a variety of scales.  

Finally, and most importantly, geography helps our students become global citizens and stewards of the environment by exploring their own place in the world, their values and responsibilities towards others, the environment and sustainability of the planet.
