“The study of geography is about more than just memorizing places on a map. It’s about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures that exists across continents. And in the end, it’s about using all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together.”

President Barak Obama

Boys develop an understanding of Human and Physical Geography and how the two areas interact to help shape their views on global issues such as the environment and sustainability. Our extra-curricular programme further enriches the curriculum and encourages boys to think more independently about the world in which they live. In previous years Junior Paulines have had success in local and national competitions such as Young Geographer of the Year.


Fieldwork plays a central role in this subject at St Paul's Juniors. Learning by experience is essential in Geography. Junior boys complete a local study of Barnes, visit the Barnes Wetland Centre and spend a day visiting the River Thames, which is right on our doorstep. In their penultimate year, senior boys visit the Lake District taking part in a joint Geography and Science outdoor education field study week.
