Geography provides the opportunity to investigate our natural and human environment. Our aim is to develop an awareness of the world in which we live. The Geography curriculum at Birkdale provides a broad knowledge base, it links well with other subjects, it is about real world issues and there are a variety of interesting fieldwork opportunities. For example, we have done fieldwork in Snowdonia, The Lake District, Dorset, Iceland, New York, Grand Canyon and Morocco.
