At St Hilda’s we aim to stimulate the girls’ curiosity about the world and to develop their understanding of different physical and human processes.

The girls are introduced to a diversity of places, landscapes and communities and are taught a range of skills which will develop their ability to research topics, handle data and interpret information.

As the girls progress through the school, they take part in a variety of fieldwork activities, ranging from an exploration of land use in and around Harpenden, to a coastal erosion study in North Yorkshire.

By Form VI, our girls have gained a deeper understanding of the formation and use of landscapes and environments, as well as an appreciation of the interaction between physical and human processes.
