Geography is, in the broadest sense, an education for life and for living. Learning through geography helps us all to be more informed and responsible citizens and employees. Understanding the causes of differences and inequalities between social groups, cultures, political systems, economies, landscapes and environments underlie much of the newer developments in human geography. Geography not only lies as a stepping stone to a whole range of opportunities, but the skills our students develop can lead to employment in journalism, media, engineering, IT, travel and tourism, marketing and teaching.

 "Geography puts this understanding of social and physical processes within the content of places and religions - recognising the great differences in cultures, political systems, economies and environments."Mr Dagger - Head of Humanities

 

Key Stage 3

Geography is, in the broadest sense, an education for life and for living. Learning through geography - whether gained through formal learning or experientially through travel, fieldwork and expeditions - helps us all to be more socially and environmentally sensitive, informed and responsible citizens and employees.

Geography puts this understanding of social and physical processes within the context of places and regions - recognising the great differences in cultures, political systems, economies, landscapes and environments across the world, and the links between them. Understanding the causes of differences and inequalities between places and social groups underlie much of the newer developments in human geography.

Key Stage 4

Geography is well known as a subject that links to all other subjects in the curriculum, so a GCSE in Geography is a stepping stone to a whole range of opportunities. A good grade will help to move you on to any AS, Applied A Level or BTEC course. You may want to continue your study of geography or take a course such as a BTEC National in Travel and Tourism which has a more work related approach.

The skills you develop can lead you to employment opportunities in journalism, media, engineering, IT, travel and tourism, environmental management, marketing, business management and teaching. Geographers are everywhere!
