At Bute House we believe that Geography is important because, in learning about their world, children can make sense of it and develop an identity through learning about their immediate environment and place this in context with the wider environment.
Throughout their studies, the girls learn about other cultures and countries. They are encouraged to increase their geographical skills and to identify geographical features. In addition, the girls are able to develop their knowledge of environmental issues and to form their own opinions on such issues. We aim for the girls to enjoy the subject of geography and develop confidence and a sense of achievement.
Geography is taught throughout the school from Reception upwards. We broadly follow the National Curriculum. There are opportunities to enhance their studies through fieldwork and workshops, including a 5 day residential trip to Skern Lodge in Devon.
