Geography

Geography is concerned with the study of places and the human and physical processes which shape and affect them. It helps students to make sense of their surroundings in relation to the wider world.

Primary children progress through a programme of study which begins with their immediate environment and develops into studies of local, national, international and global issues. They are encouraged to observe the similarities and differences between places and the interdependence of humans and the environment.

In the Secondary School a wide range of topics include physical features, hazards, settlement, population and environmental problems. Students are prepared for the IGCSE examination in Year 11 and the International Baccalaureate in Year 13.

Fieldwork is an integral part of the curriculum for students across the school and residential visits allow time for in-depth study. Some trips make use of local features; for example, the Year 7 boat trip on the Chao Phraya and the Year 11 visit to the Meteorological Department. Residential visits also allow opportunities for geography study such as the Khao Yai National Park which is visited by Year 5; Chiang Mai by Year 6 and Kanchanaburi by Year 8. Year 10 students visit Hua Hin and perform a variety of fieldwork activities to prepare them for the alternative to coursework paper. Year 12 visit Chiang Mai to collect geographical data on which to base coursework projects for external examination. Year 9 students have the opportunity of visiting Japan during the last week of the academic year.
