Belmont - Geography


We aim to provide students with a geographical education which is up to date, relevant to their lives and encourages independent learning and an enquiring mind.

Our objective is to extend pupils’ locational knowledge and key geographical skills. Pupils study the interrelationships between the human and physical worlds, how they affect each other and how they might be managed in more sustainable ways.
