Y10-Y13 Geographers will be taking part in activities to mark Geographic Information Systems (GIS) day which officially takes place on Wednesday 14th November.

GIS technology is used to demonstrate real-world applications and to model how we can support and protect how we grow and develop in our world. Certainly, with the pressures on our planet, the GIS models will be an important aspect of our planet moving forward, and even a career route for our students as they grow into adults.

Matt Allman, Headteacher, said: “Geography is much more than just the study of rivers or volcanoes, but instead looks as much to the future as the present. This GIS project gets our students to apply their geographical expertise to global issues and to reflect on how the world they live in will develop and change.”
