Why Geography?

The Geography curriculum ensures that our students are able to understand the world in which they live and inspire them to tackle the issues we face. In making sense of the world we live in, the interactions between human and physical process and exploring sustainable futures our students will develop a range of skills that prepare them for work or further study. Our Geographers become proficient at researching and exploring geographical issues, they develop problem solving and decision making skills whilst handling and collecting data in the field. Our geography students leave enriched with skills, become intellectually aware of what is happening in the world and ready to understand, study or work in a changing world. .
