Geography at Lomond is taught from Transitus to S6 by specialist teachers. It is the intention from the start to set high standards of expectation, leading to high standards of achievement. To this end, the courses from Transitus to S2 contain the fundamental language and concepts that pupils will encounter in the certificate courses from S3–S6 (National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher).
Lomond School is located on the edge of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park in the glaciated landscape of the west of Scotland. A significant part of our course material, therefore, is on our doorstep. We fully utilise the outdoors to ensure all of our year groups are 'out in the field' as much as possible to aid their learning and to assist with Assignment preparation. Human and physical fieldwork plays a big part in the teaching of Geography, as well as ensuring we become aware of the world around us in a global context.
