Importance of Geography at Westhoughton High School

 

Geography provokes and answers questions about the natural and human world, using different scales of enquiry to help pupils to do this, and it also helps them to view people, places and environments from different perspectives.  It develops knowledge of places and environments throughout the world, and understanding of maps, and a range of investigative and problem-solving skills, both inside and outside the classroom.  As such, it prepares pupils for adult life and employment.  Geography is a focus within the curriculum for understanding and resolving issues about the environment and sustainable development.  It is also an important link between the natural and social sciences.  As pupils study geography, they encounter different societies and cultures.  This helps them realise how nations rely on each other.  It can inspire them to think about their own place in the world, their values, and their rights and responsibilities to other people and the environment.  They begin to realise how nations rely on each other and this can inspire them to think about their own place in the world, their values, and their rights and responsibilities to other people and the environment.
