"The study of geography is about more than just memorizing places on a map. It's about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures that exists across continents. And in the end, it's about using all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together.”
Planet Earth is our only home. It is an mind-blowing, diverse and constantly changing place of awesome beauty and power. In studying geography, students investigate the links between people and their environment on both local and international scales. The subject encompasses the natural processes that shape the planet, the cultural diversity of its inhabitants, and issues that our environments face.
As geographers at Quainton Hall, we are passionate about discovering how our world works and what impact humans are having on its fragile existence.
Teachers in the department are committed to cultivating the knowledge and understanding of the pupils and also developing the thinking skills which are so vital in the study of Geography. In doing this, we are able to explore values and issues, and to challenge stereotypes, whilst still encouraging the children to think for themselves.
P5 had an incredible time visiting Kew Gardens. They learnt about the rain forest habitat and sketched some of the plants!
