Called as God’s family, we strive to achieve our personal best, by living and learning in Christ.

Our Geography Department

The Geography Department has three full time teaching staff:

Geography is a popular option at both GCSE and A-Level, and conducts fieldwork in Year 10 and Year 12 for both GCSE and A-Level. At KS3, local fieldwork takes place in and around Hagley.

We have also been fortunate to run a Sicily trip for Year 10 geographers for the last 10 years visiting Mount Etna, the Aeolian Islands and the tourist sites of Taormina and Ortigia. We explore the volcanic nature of the island as well as the tourist nature of it’s economy.

Curriculum Aims

The aim of the geography curriculum at Hagley Catholic High School is to help students develop an understanding of the world and key issues that will affect them in the future, including climate change, population pressure and natural hazards. Through their study of these topics they will develop important core skills over time that will help them to prepare for application in the world. These include map reading, graphicacy, enquiry, analysis and critical thinking.
