What have previous students said aout Geography?

Johanna Rutherford (Ex Head Girl, Year 13)

‘Now, as an A level student looking back, I can say taking Geography at GCSE & A Level was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The skills I have gained have been extremely useful not only for Geography but also in my other subjects because the skills learned are very transferable. I have learnt in detail many aspects of both human and physical geography including tectonics, rivers and their management and changing populations. I am now going on to study Geography at university, specifically Physical Geography. I am passionate about Geography and I am looking forward to continuing my studies. Both the subject and the teaching have been incredible and I would encourage anyone to take Geography.’
