  • An understanding of the contexts in which texts are written;
  • The power of the imagination;

Why study Geography?

Geography is well known as a subject that links to all other subjects in the curriculum, so a GCSE in Geography is a stepping stone to a whole range of opportunities.

A good grade will help to move you on to any AS, Applied A Level or BTEC course. You may want to continue your study of geography or take a course such as a BTEC National in Travel and Tourism which has a more work related approach.

The skills you  develop can lead you to employment opportunities in journalism, media, engineering, Armed Forces, ICT, travel & tourism, environmental management, marketing, business management and teaching.

Geographers are everywhere!
