Why not join the new ISSIG group on the Geographical Association Ning? You must become a member of the Ning before you can join the group, but signing up is free and only takes a few seconds.

Our Aims

The Independent Schools Special Interest Group represents the interests of geography teachers in public and preparatory schools within the GA and aims to increase the membership of Independent School geographers to the GA.

What we do

We have a distinct membership drawn from geography teachers in public and preparatory schools. In addition to representing their interests within the GA, we organise in-service training opportunities and produce an annual newsletter Notes and Queries to members of ISSIG.


To be included on the Independent Schools Special Interest Group mailing list, please contact the Administrator.

Each summer we hold an annual conference, which includes workshops, forums, lectures and a publishers' display. We also organise a range of other conferences, which are listed on the Events page.
