The College has been awarded the Geographical Association's 'Secondary Geography Quality Mark'.   
 
We were among only 46 schools in the UK to be awarded with this prestigious award, which recognises high quality, innovative teaching and learning of Geography in secondary schools. To achieve this award the department had to submit a 60 page portfolio of evidence to prove we meet the high standards of the Geographical Association. 

We are very proud to receive this award, as it demonstrates our commitment to improve all aspects of our department.

Here's what the GA say about the award; 'The SGQM award process encourages and supports schools to reflect on their work and strive for the highest quality in their teaching. All the award winners undergo a rigorous moderation process, and the team of assessors were hugely impressed by the manner in which all are continuing to embrace new and innovative approaches to teaching geography.

The SGQM, now into its 9th year, recognises student attainment, progress and achievement in areas such as geographical knowledge, understanding, values, skills and concepts, and sets expectations about the quality of teaching in geography. It aims to promote effective subject leadership and management, helping subject leaders raise the standards of geography in their schools.'

 Congratulations to everyone in the department!
