Geography helps you to make sense of the world around you. It’s relevant, hands on and enjoyable. From architecture to politics, business to public services, Geography guides important decisions. The physical landscape frames the debates happening today and our future. Historically, studying Geography has been associated with navigation skills, physical landscapes, and spatial thinking. Today, however, it goes far beyond this. In the face of climate change and environmental challenges, Geography skills are in demand.
“Geography encourages us to zoom out and pick apart the complex web of connections that makes our world.”
The Geography national curriculum includes a good mix of topics such as urban issues, world development, extreme environments, rivers and hazards. Our secondary school scheme of work is divided into two streams: Physical Geography and Urban Geography. We deliver engaging lessons which bring Geography to life. Our students enjoy learning new skills such as computer-based mapping (GIS), map reading, presenting, role play and debating techniques. Through fieldwork, relevant documentaries and podcasts, our students study Geography in the real-world and discuss current affairs.

We encourage students to explore Geography beyond the national curriculum. Students considering a Geography undergraduate degree should be up to date with current debates and the latest academic research. Our Geography specialists recommend these resources to get you started:
