Young Geographer of the Year Competition
This year’s Young Geographer of the Year competition gives pupils the chance to explore the potential that geography holds. Whether you’ve always wanted geography to take you to a particular place, to help you in a particular career or to help you understand one of the many challenges facing our world, we want to know where geography can take you.
If you are interested in taking part please see Miss Anderson for an entry form and some more information.
Purpose of study
A high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
