Geography Subject Lead

Mrs Pinchen

“I aim to inspire pupils to develop a curiosity and fascination about the world, immersing them in a variety of diverse countries and cultures and enabling them to think about their own place in the world, their values and their rights and responsibilities to others, people and the environment.”
