Trinity’s Geography department is special. The dedicated team of geographers at Trinity provide everything you need to explore the connections between humankind and its environment. Geography is separated into two parts: human and physical. At Trinity, you learn about both, from China’s one child policy (human) to tectonic plate movement in North America (physical). The department goes above and beyond the curriculum in providing opportunities to explore the discipline outside the classroom, such as poster designing for the Royal Geographical Society and setting up school eco councils. Geography at Trinity is dynamic, fully-rounded and vibrant.

Geography

What is Geography and why is it so important? This is the very question we ask our students when they first walk into geography and during their time with us in key stage 3 and up to GCSE, AS and A2 we answer this in as much depth and detail as possible. Our students enjoy and are encouraged to explore all the different elements within geography as a subject covering a great variety of topics from weather in the UK to Cyclones in Burma.  We study issues such as quality of life in the local area, to discussions and debates on how the Amazon rainforest and other forests for the world should be managed. We explore the benefits and issues of the Chinese One Child Policy and look at how our population is ageing rapidly. We investigate and assess the impact of earthquakes and volcanoes in varying parts of the world and how flooding is now part of our British weather.

All students produce models, posters, leaflets, booklets, and participate in debates, presentations, teaching students, questioning and use ICT whenever possible.

Each classroom has a projector, classroom computer and an ipad.

Our Students explore not only topics in the classroom but out and about in the UK. A few places we have visited in the past:

  • Birmingham
  • Colchester
  • Conwy
  • Dorset
  • Flatofrd Mill
  • Forest of Dean
  • Isle of White
  • Leamington Spa
  • Leicester
  • Llandudno
  • London
  • Norwich
  • Norfolk
  • Nottingham
  • Overstrand
  • Stratford
  • Suffolk
  • Warwick

 

As a department we provide plenty of extra-curricular support including after school clubs and sessions to help A level, GCSE and key stage 3 students with their work.
