Geography at The Castle School

Course description

We live in a dynamic world that is continually changing. Studying Geography will help you understand the causes, consequences and possible management approaches to these changes. The course develops your knowledge, understanding and opinions on a broad range of global issues, including the earth’s places, peoples, environments and societies. You will develop transferrable skills such as literacy, numeracy, ICT, independent research, analysis and evaluation, decision making, team work and problem solving.

Geography bridges the gap between social and physical sciences and therefore complements a wide range of subjects from a number of faculties. The range of topics and skills covered means Geography provides a pathway into many careers. Jobs involving geographical content include surveying, engineering, environmental management, town planning, meteorology, architecture and the travel and leisure industries. A broad range of other professions such as marketing, accountancy, journalism and business management also value the transferrable skills gained from Geography.
