Children in schools today will have an adult life, which will stretch to the end of the 21st century. Geography enables our students to understand their place in this dynamic world and the issues that have, (and will continue to do so) taken place around them. The Geography department at St. John's aims to educate and provoke questions about our physical and human environments and consider these issues within their spiritual, moral and cultural context.

We encourage a thoughtful and enquiry based approach to the learning of geography through which St. John's students will develop and awareness of their roles as global citizens.

In their early years at St. John's, students are encouraged to think about their own place in the world through an understanding of maps and a range of investigative and problem solving skills. This is developed further in their senior years through a wide range of both Physical and Human topics.

Students become involved in decision making exercises, fieldwork and the analysis of qualitative and quantitative data. Each student will be encouraged to work with others, improve their own learning and performance and convey through written and oral presentations the decisions and results of enquiry.

A progressive department, Geography at St. John's is developing responsibility amongst the students to think from the 'local' to the 'global' with increasing the learning outside of the classroom developing their use of communication, thinking and learning skills.
