Welcome to the Hampton College Geography Department! The Geography department is passionate about the subject and the staff convey this passion through Geography lessons.
- 'There has never been a better or more important time to study geography. With growing interest in issues such as climate change, migration, environmental degradation and social cohesion, geography is one of the most relevant courses you could choose to study. Geographers are also highly employable'
- Whatever your passion for the world - fascination with landscapes or concerns about inequality - geography will provide you with knowledge and transferable skills that will reward you personally and advance you professionally.

Our aim is to provide excellent lessons that not only stretch and challenge the more able pupils, but also assist less able students to access the curriculum. We use a variety of teaching styles that appeal to different learning preferences. These enable students to develop an excellent understanding of the world around them. In lessons we look at how physical and human processes interact, views that different interest groups will have about a geographical issue and why they have these opinions. We also look at the issue of sustainability; the idea that our actions can have an impact on the environment and how these impacts can be managed for the future.
At Hampton College the Geography curriculum is enhanced by extra-curricular activities. We see fieldwork as being an integral part of learning and as a department we are keen to provide opportunities to students whenever possible.
