‘Developing students to become geographers rather than simply learners of geography’


Geography is the ONLY subject that enables you to understand the natural and human worlds and how they interact. Geography is not only up-to-date and relevant, it is one of the most exciting, adventurous and valuable subjects to study today. So many of the world's current problems boil down to geography, and need the geographers of the future to help us understand them.



Why Geography?

  • It is recognised for its academic ‘robustness’ as it develops an extensive range of skills, both geographical and cross-curricular.
  • It combines well with both the arts and the sciences due to the range of topics covered.
  • It provides an understanding of global geographical issues and how to apply this to a range of contexts. This means learners’ real-life skills are developed and become relevant to future decision making.


What makes a good Geography student?

A good Geography student is someone who is:

  • Continuously questioning the world around them
  • Interested in the news and seeks to broaden their geographical knowledge
  • Reflective and learns from past experiences
  • Empathetic, showing consideration for all people in society
  • Interested in data and patterns, likes to analyse past and present trends and to spot anomalies. More, importantly, someone who can offer explanations for these trends
