Hadrian Primary School

"An outstanding school where children make excellent progress" Ofsted

Be Unique;Believe, Achieve, Succeed Together


At Hadrian Primary School we cover many different geography topics. We learn about the country we live in and it's people, landscape and weather as well as countries abroad.

The children are encouraged to develop their skills of enquiry, mapping skills and fieldwork activities

We are especially interested in looking at the area we live in and exploring the rich variety of resources it has to offer.

We have recently been involved with Nexus designing a metro station. We make many visits to local landmarks including Souter Lighthouse, Marine Park and the beach.


The children use a wide variety of maps and atlases to locate Britain and countries around the world.  This helps them to identify differences in climate and landscapes.


The different topics are organised by year group.
