Geography is a living, breathing subject, constantly adapting itself to change. It is dynamic and relevant. For me geography is a great adventure with a purpose.
– Michael Palin
Geography at Orley Farm is driven by reality; the leaders of the future are in our classrooms and the future of the planet is in their hands. We understand the importance of developing a love of learning about the world around us and an appreciation of how our choices must be carefully considered as we each have an impact.
Geography across the school is taught through a range of cross curricular links that illuminate its relevance in our 21st Century world. We collaborate with thinking skills such as good judgement, create learning experiences for writing and discover real scientific concepts through physical geographical learning.
Join us on our geographical adventure at Orley Farm where we will find our place in the world.

Yesterday, Year 5 played battleships in geography to gain a better understanding of grid references. It was amazing how many pupils had never played before! #OFSgoodjudgement pic.twitter.com/lcs8MK7BEw
