Geography

Why we think Geography is an important subject to study:

Well, apart from the fact we think it’s an enormously interesting subject….there are lots of reasons.

  • You will learn skills that you can use in other subjects such as extended writing, analysing and presenting statistical data
  • You will learn communication skills that will help you when you get a job such as literacy skills of reading, writing and speaking as well as presentation skills.
  • You will learn skills that will help you if you go to college to university such as extended writing, data analysis and investigating / research skills
