Geography enables girls to appreciate the ever-changing world and be better prepared citizens for the future. Geography excites curiosity and strengthens understanding of many contemporary issues through the study of global challenges such as climate change, water conflict, energy security, human rights and the development gap. Studying such issues empowers students to be able to think through problems, make decisions and find solutions.
Geography is very much an issues based subject which is future focused and as students progress through the years they begin to see how many links can be made, not just between the different elements of the subject, but also to other curriculum areas such as Science, History, Politics and Economics. The nature of Geography means there is classroom-based learning but also practical elements to the course. This encourages a variety of teaching styles and, as such, girls acquire a number of transferable learning skills.
