Promoting geography in your school

Andrew McGeown

This article suggests a number of strategies for encouraging students to continue studying geography beyond key stage 3 which are successfully used at St Mary’s Catholic High School, Wigan. These include embedding geographical enquiry within all aspects of students’ learning, investing in ICT equipment to modernise fieldwork, developing good links with primary feeder schools, offering exciting extra-curricular activities and fieldtrips, taking part in Worldwise and inviting external agencies to give presentations.
