Welcome to LHS Geography Department

Why should I study Geography?

The world we live in is constantly changing. Studying Geography will increase your awareness and understanding of these changes and empower you to become an active global citizen!

With so many of the world’s current problems coming back to Geography it really is one of the most exciting, adventurous and valuable subjects to study. You will find geographers working in a wide range of jobs, from the city to planning, working in the environment, to travel and tourism, or in international charities and retail.

Studying Geography can help you find your ideal career and one that is both professionally and financially rewarding.

What will it involve?

Learning outside of the classroom through fieldwork is an important part of the Geography curriculum at LHS. Throughout their time studying Geography, our students have multiple opportunities to study in the field, both locally and abroad.

The dedicated and experienced teaching team which makes up the Geography department strives to create an enjoyable learning environment. Our aim is that our students will develop a spirit of enquiry about their personal and local geographies as well as the wider national and international context.
