Geography bridges the gap between Arts and Sciences. Studying Geography at Thetford Grammar School provides an equal balance between studies of the human and physical environment. Geography is particularly appropriate for those with a lively and enquiring mind, an interest in the environment and current affairs, a willingness to explore new ideas and an ability to communicate them effectively.
There has never been a better time to study Geography. Geographical ideas have become increasingly frequent in local, national and international debates on key issues including pollution, poverty, immigration, globalisation, and the increasingly common and ever more devastating natural disasters. Having knowledge and understanding of geographical issues has become essential in industry, government, science and education. At TGS we hope that studying Geography will engage students in current affairs and inspire them think critically and reflect on the local and global environment.
Students will have opportunities to investigate the course through field trips including Cambridge, The North Norfolk Coast and possibly Iceland!
