At Woodside, we view the study of geography as  an essential part of being a global citizen, as it has a huge impact on how civilisations form. Geography also helps children understand how the physical world works. Geography is an important part of history and the modern age.


 Geography informs us about
  • The places and communities in which we live and work
  • Our natural environments and the pressures they face
  • How and why the world is changing, globally and locally
  • How our individual and societal
    actions contribute to those changes
  • The choices that exist in managing our world for the future
  • The importance of location in business and decision-making
Geography field work is undertaken across the school from exploring and mapping the school grounds, to observing the contours of the Chilterns and understanding the human and physical geography of the local area. 
The statutory programme of study for Geography can be found on this page.
