We hope to inspire a lifelong interest in geography and a curiosity about our world.

The aim of Geography at Marden Primary Academy is to teach an understanding of places and environments. Geography helps children to make sense of their surroundings and the wider world.
By studying their local environment and other areas, children learn about people and places and the relationships between them. They come to understand the physical and human processes and patterns present in these environments, and they can learn to appreciate the similarities and differences between places and people.
