Geography

Geography is the subject that holds the key to our future’  (Michael Palin, President of the Royal Geographical Society)

Through the study of Geography each student acquires knowledge and skills which will help them throughout their lives. Geography, more than most subjects, enables students to make sense of economic, political, social and environmental issues.

Furthermore, Geography has an important role to play in fostering international understanding through teaching about different cultures and helps students to understand their environment and how human activity uses and misuses it.
