Geography Awarded Quality Mark

07 October 2015

The Geography department at An Phu Secondary have been very busy recently, winning awards and teaching the World’s Largest Lesson.

The Geographical Association (GA) awarded 46 schools with the Secondary Geography Quality Mark (SGQM) in September 2015 and our school was one of them!

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.

In September, our Geography department was awarded the prestigious Secondary Geography Quality Mark (SGQM) from the Geographical Association (GA) in acknowledgement of their excellent work. They have worked extremely hard to achieve such an accolade and it is well deserved.

The Geographical Association recognised that our curriculum “is packed full of innovative, challenging and topical geography that takes the students on an exploration of the earth filled with wonder and fascination.” Thanks to the unwavering dedication of our geography department which was repeatedly highlighted in the feedback from the association.

If this wasn’t enough, the Geographers also led our cross campus participation in the World’s Largest Lesson with schools in over 100 countries also taking part.

An Phu Secondary Global Goal Selfies

During our week long series of activities, we challenged our students to think about and discuss the recently announced Sustainable Development Goals. Students took part in the discussions about various global issues that have an impact on the goals and vice versa, they also took part in the #DizzyGoal Challenge and took selfies to show their support and concern.

See more from our week of activities here.

Finally, just a little reminder, that thanks to the Geography department, we have a weather station on top of the An Phu Secondary school building. There is a very exciting new development with it on the way. Watch this space!
