What is it to be a Geographer at Marriotts?

At Marriott’s our intent for Geography is to inspire pupils with a curiosity and fascination about the physical and human processes and features of the world that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. We wish to grow and nature a love of the subject of geography that will inspire future students to share their appreciation and understanding of the importance of the subject.

Teaching will equip pupils with understand place, space, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.

Teaching will also encompass a range of geographic skills that will be applicable and useful throughout their academic career, ranging from critical thinking, to reading maps and GIS, statistics for geographers and evaluation and application skills.
