“The study of geography is more than just memorising 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.” Barack Obama 

We are committed to developing Newfield geographers who are responsible, respectful and informed global citizens, who can have a meaningful impact in their world and on the people in it. Geography offers a distinct analysis of the challenges facing the world right now, many of which stem out of ignorance. As such, we are dedicated to providing our students with knowledge, passion and empathy, thereby empowering them to be change makers in their local community, people who wish to make a sizeable difference to the world we live in, this is at the heart of geography at Newfield School. The students we teach are after all our next generation who will determine the fate of our planet.  

We strongly believe that the geography is a bridge between many subjects; including maths, science, history and English; geography after all is modern history! Consequently we want to equip our young people with knowledge so that they can develop their skills and have the ability to shape our future in a sustainable way.  

We seek to provide our students with an understanding of the seven different continents that make up our world, including the study of their physical and human features and how they interact with each other. As our world becomes increasingly globalised, it is essential that students acquire knowledge about different countries and cultures, whilst analysing and evaluating information, not just taking things on face value. Simultaneously appreciating the interdependence of many elements on planet Earth and how the human population can influence the future.
