Teachers and outside speakers help to raise awareness through campaigns such as ‘Recycling and the Environment; and ‘World Awareness Week’ Geography is also brought alive in Scholars’ Evening themes, school debates, subscriptions to Geographical periodicals, Chapel sermons, and even meals with national flavours!
Our Geography results are strong because we believe in stimulating learning through a multi-sensory approach (with a range of books, worksheets, maps, press articles, posters, DVDs and computer based exercises), and regular exposure to test and exam experience to perfect skills in this area. The seniors at Windlesham have moved from studying urban geography based in nearby Findon Village, to an investigation into the National Park status of the South Downs. Local farmers help us to examine various aspects of the beautiful countryside in which this school is set. The juniors travel slightly further afield and regularly visit the Seven Sisters Country Park to investigate a river flood plain.
