BSG Awarded The Secondary Geography Quality Mark (SGQM)

It is with great delight that the Geography Department at The British School Guangzhou has been awarded the Secondary Geography Quality Mark (SGQM). Only 425 schools worldwide have received this award since 2006.

  • BSG Geography Quality Mark Award

The SGQM award process encourages and supports schools to reflect on their work and strive for the highest quality in their teaching.

The award required a lengthy and rigorous moderation process whereby staff within the Geography Department were encouraged to reflect on how well the department was achieving its aims and meeting its priorities. Part of the process also involved the department reviewing the curriculum, identifying priorities for departmental professional development, sharing good practice and encouraging creative and critical thinking about curriculum. The team of assessors were hugely impressed by the manner in which the department embraced new and innovative approaches to teaching Geography which resulted in the SGQM being granted.

Mr. Kevin McDaid, who was pivotal in helping the department achieve the award shared his reaction to the fantastic news;

“I am absolutely delighted to hear the Geography department at BSG has attained the Geographical Association Secondary Geography Quality Mark. The process was a complex one that required us to forensically examine what the strengths and areas for development are in the department in terms of, for example, teaching, learning, assessment and fieldwork. I believe the process and our subsequent recognition by such a prestigious organisation, which has been working for the promotion of Geography for over 100 years, is testament first and foremost to all the incredible Geography students at BSG who show commitment, enthusiasm and a love of learning every day in their classrooms. I am certain this will be a foundation for the Geography department to grow and develop in the future.”
