Stratford Girls' Grammar School Stratford-Upon-Avon


All students take Geography in Years 7 to 9 and many continue it to GCSE. Geography is a dynamic subject that explains the natural and human world, its societies, economies and environments. From climate change and globalisation to immigration and urban planning, girls develop a deeper understanding of the world around them. They learn how to collect and analyse data, to solve problems, to produce balanced, well-supported arguments, and to present different types of information.
