Geography

The study of Geography involves analysis of the inter-relationship between humans and their environment and so provides a greater insight into the major issues facing society today.

The concepts and case studies that form the basis of all work programmes are designed to lead our students to an understanding of the nature and origin of these issues and the various ways in which they might be managed more effectively.

An enquiry-based approach to learning is adopted, through a variety of teaching methods including discussions and debates, group work, presentations, video case studies, IT and research assignments. Fieldwork is an essential part of the IGCSE and IB courses.

Students follow the UK National Curriculum at KS3, the IGCSE course at KS4 and the International Baccalaureate course in Years 12 and 13.

Career opportunities

Many of our students go on to study Geography at university level and have used their qualifications to access a variety of careers.

Further information about career paths for the geographer can be found on the UK's official graduate careers website.
