Geographers investigate and try to explain the world around them by looking for patterns and trends and seeking to explain their observations. If we understand how natural processes work we can predict the likely impact that people will have on them. This effective planning should lead to a sustainable management approach. Our investigations will look at scales ranging from global to local and include a focus on different levels of development. Geography includes a wide range of key skills.
