Masterclasses

    The geography department is keen to encourage students to appreciate the diversity and breadth of geography and to have opportunities to develop their own interests beyond the National Curriculum and exam board syllabuses.  For this reason we try to arrange a number of after school geography masterclasses.  A selection of recent masterclasses are shown below.  We encourage any students to come, but the events are particularly suitable for students in Years 10-13.  Parents and carers are also welcome to attend.
