Love Learning. Aim High. Trust God.


Lead teacher - Mrs Bond


Children will build on their knowledge of their place in the world throughout their time at HSA. In terms of Physical Geography, they will be able to build on their answer to the question ‘Where do you live/come from?’ as they move through the school, moving from the simple answer ‘Hertford’ and gradually expanding this to include the wider area, and then further to compare their area to places in Europe and in the wider world. In terms of Human Geography, they will know how what they do affects the world, and how to look after the world they live in.


The key aims of Geography education are:

  • To be able to read maps and plans and use them to navigate, plan routes and to give directions.
  • To understand the human and physical Geography of the UK.
  • To know about the human and physical geography of the wider world.
