Geography at Shuttleworth aims to promote an appreciation and understanding of the world and global community through a vibrant curriculum.

We seek to emphasise the power and wonder of the natural world as well as the forces that humans have in shaping our global and local communities.  Today, there are both natural and human seismic shifts in our geographical realities, and we want our students to understand the places and processes that impact their day to day lives now and in the future.

What are the career opportunities of this subject?
Geography is a vibrant subject which imbues many transferable skills into its students. However, there are also many careers directly related to the subject, in areas such as planning, cartography, environmental consultation, GIS, conservation, meteorology, and teaching.

What ‘out-of-classroom’ or extra-curricular learning experiences will my child get?
Geography is best learnt out of the classroom, through our experience of the natural world and built environments.  At Shuttleworth we aim to give each year group the opportunity to attend one fieldwork trip where they will experience for themselves the theories we have studied in class and put into practice a range of skills from cartographic to data and number handing.  There are also opportunities for students to conduct fieldwork in closer quarters, around the school grounds, which provides a range of environments and opportunities, as well as students conducting research relating to their own neighbourhoods as home learning tasks.

“Geography is a living, breathing subject, constantly adapting itself to change. It is dynamic and relevant. For me geography is a great adventure with a purpose.”

Michael Palin

“Geography is interesting. It is important to know about the things that happen on earth. I like how we do different activities every lesson, it helps us to understand different things in different ways.”
