Geography is an exciting, dynamic subject. It is all about the world we live in and the way in which we interact with it. Every time you switch on the TV you hear something about Geography – for example climate change, poverty in Africa, wind farms. The BIG question however is are we changing the planet for the better or worse? Here at Preston Lodge High School we aim to develop your understanding of these issues that affect us daily, through investigation, group work and field work we will show you the ways in which the landscape changes through natural and human interactions and the impacts that these have.
It is hoped that these WebPages will assist you in your studies from S1 – Advanced Higher.

Ms Gordan has joined us this year. She is a graduate of Stirling University and has a particular interest in human geography.
Rocky Canyon has joined the department from his home in New York to help support the delivery of Geography. He is a whizz at IT and loves rock music. Rocky is a rebel preferring to wear his Rockers leather jacket than the more traditional tweed jacket with leather patches. Rocky is always on hand to support pupils and other staff alike.
Rocky can be seen in the picture supporting our S2 pupils with presentations about the Inuit.
