St Anthony's School Hampstead

St Anthony's Girls School Hampstead

Our Ethos

St. Anthony's aims to provide high quality education in a caring, supportive and Catholic environment, infused by Christ's Gospel, in order that each of our pupils is able to develop fully as an individual, well-adjusted to the wider community.

Geography

Geography at St. Anthony’s is covered from Years 1 to 4 as part of Humanities and as a discrete subject from Year 5 onwards. Its aim is to give the boys a ‘sense of their place in the world’. This journey embraces the powers and processes that shape and change the planet, how Human activity and settlement has developed over time, and how this activity can affect the natural environment.


Geography is a subject that largely exists outside and although technology enables many virtual field trips, actual trips are an important part of the curriculum. These include exploring the local environment and conducting shopping surveys around Hampstead for the younger boys, trips to the living rainforest, measuring river channel dynamics and investigating the lunar landscape of Iceland for the older year groups.
