Why study Geography?

Geography is part of the Key Stage 3 curriculum and is also available as a Key Stage 4 option subject. For interested Key Stage 3 students, we offer an extra-curricular Geography club.

Do you ever wonder what’s happening in other parts of the world today, and why? Do you ever ask, ‘Why is it always cold and wet in the UK?’, ‘What exactly is climate change?’, or ‘How will deforestation in the Amazon Rainforest impact me?’ If you do, then you already have the curiosity that makes geography so special.

In a world which is constantly changing and expanding, we know that life is becoming increasingly difficult to navigate. Geography aims to inspire and develop well-rounded global citizens, preparing students to face twenty-first-century life with confidence. We want you to open your mind and explore further than before. Studying geography will give you the chance to get to grips with some of the big challenges that affect our world, and understand the human and physical processes that shape our planet.

We will challenge your perceptions of places around the world by introducing you to case studies that focus on the opportunities and challenges that people face now and in the future. Furthermore, you will explore local environments on field trips to investigate how both physical and human processes shape these environments. These skills and experiences will enable you to continue with geography in higher educational settings and nurture you into a highly employable member of our society.

As an expert geographer, maybe one day you will be helping to improve the quality of life for thousands of people across the world.
