Key to our studies is the promotion of a concern for the environment and the way in which humans interact with it.
We aim to reach an understanding of problems or at least an awareness of the social, economic and environmental issues. It is important for students to be equipped to make decisions for themselves and express viewpoints after weighing up all the available evidence.
We teach by investigating a whole range of topics from small scale local issues through to subjects of international and worldwide concern. Examples are chosen to provide a balance between rich and poor countries.
Students work in a variety of ways, individually and in small groups. Sometimes the teaching is class orientated while at others the work is individual and the students take responsibility for their own learning.
We increasingly aim to encourage our students to think for themselves and to make independent choices when making proposals to improve a situation.
