Geography is a diverse and dynamic subject at Swans, equipping pupils with valuable knowledge and skills for their future studies. Pupils learn about the natural processes that create and shape our environments and how these interact with life in the ecosystems that they support.
They also study the ways in which humans modify environments through urbanization, agriculture and polluting activities. Global issues of development, inequality, trade and culture are discussed and bring in many elements of economics.
Geography is popular at Swans with pupils enjoying a range of learning experiences including ICT based investigations, model making and trips to the surrounding areas for activities such as orienteering, river studies and urban investigations.
