Geography develops a variety of skills, with pupils not only able to write effectively, but also to take part in debate and discussion, carry out surveys, analyse data and have a realistic knowledge of environmental problems.

Local field work takes place both within Haileybury's grounds and in the surrounding rural and urban landscape, while residential courses take place in term-time and during the holidays. The year groups have previously visited Cambridge, Shropshire, the Olympic Park and Morocco as a part of their studies. In October 2013, Sixth Form Geographers travelled to Uganda, to explore the Geography of this fascinating country.

At GCSE level, the AQA IGCSE course is followed and at AS/A2 Level, we do AQA. An increasing number of pupils have opted for the IB Geography course, which can be studied at both the Standard and the Higher Level.

"The Department runs an annual trip to Iceland for Year 10 and 11 pupils as well as trips to countries such as Peru."
