Subject Overview

You know where you are with Geography: a subject that deals with the complex and varied interactions between humans and the physical world. Geography takes you on a journey to discover the planet’s natural systems and the ways that humans have attempted to manage, influence and even tame them. The newspapers are often full of doom and gloom: too many people, increased floods and storms, global poverty. Geography examines and analyses the evidence behind the issues and allows students to reach a balanced, informed view of the major issues facing the 21st century and suggest their own potential solutions. Geography prepares young people for the world they will soon inherit.
