The vision of the Geography department here at Abbs Cross Academy and Arts college is one of excellence. We aim to be the best Geography department in the UK.

We draw on a rich variety of experience and views to support a coherent and collegiate approach to teaching and learning within the department, fostering a spirit of enquiry and continual improvement.

We seek to instil an understanding of the planet Earth and its peoples, a lasting awareness of the world around us, sensitivity and empathy towards others, tolerance and independent thinking in the students.

The Geography department aims to ensure that all students leave Abbs Cross Academy and Arts College with a clear understanding about the importance of Geography in their future lives. Having progressed to and achieved the highest possible standards in Geography, it is our hope that students go on to become active global citizens, contributing to their communities in a positive way.
