The St. Benedict’s Geography department have a vision and a passion to help students develop a sense of awe and wonder in the dynamic and diverse world we live in. Through the study of a wide range of physical and human environments, we help pupils to discover answers to questions they may have about the world around them and the people that live on it.
“Geography is not only up-to-date and relevant, it is one of the most exciting, adventurous and valuable subjects to study today. So many of the world’s current problems boil down to geography, and need the geographers of the future to help us understand them. Global warming, sustainable food production, natural disasters such as earthquakes and tsunamis, the spread of disease, the reasons for migration and the future of energy resources are just some of the great challenges facing the next generation of geographers.”
