At the heart of the Geography Department lies their mission statement and intent.
This really does underpin the work that they do in developing a sense of responsibility and enthusiasm for the students here at Dormston. The Geography department consists of three enthusiastic and dedicated teachers. Mr Perry (Head of Geography), Miss Goldie and Mrs Williams. They teach in classrooms all equipped with interactive whiteboards and projectors.
The Geography department at Dormston are committed to instilling a passion for Geography both within and outside of the classroom. They make Geography desirable and accessible to all young people so that their learning of the subject continues far away from the four walls of the classroom.
‘For our students to have a love of the natural world and of the people in it – so that they become responsible global citizens. Students will gain a sense of place in an ever changing environment and develop transferrable skills that equip them for the wider world’
Fieldwork is a key part in our subject and we believe that it is important that this takes place here at Dormston.
Our current Year 11 students will shortly be visiting the Holderness Coast to study coastal erosion and protection to help complete part of their GCSE fieldwork. They will also be visiting the local surroundings of Sedgley looking into shopping patterns and regeneration.
We are currently in the process of organising a trip the south of Italy for 2019.
