Department introduction

The Geography Department at Wolverhampton Grammar School is based in the Merridale building.

Geography is an enjoyable subject, particularly when students discover the diversity of human and physical landscapes. The department works hard to ensure students develop a strong interest in both their immediate surroundings and the wider world and their place within it.

The curriculum develops key skills and knowledge in a number of fascinating areas including rivers and settlements, tectonics, weather and climate, world development and landscapes, coastal environments, pollution, energy, world tourism, urban landscapes, population and earth resources. The department uses IT and technology to ensure students get the most out of the curriculum and learning experience.

Field trips include river surveys, adventure landscapes and residentials including the annual Bude physical geography residential.
