Collyer’s Geography department has received the prestigious Secondary Geography Quality Mark Award, recognising exceptional quality of teaching and student work.

The Quality Mark is awarded by the Geographical Association (GA) which is the leading subject association for teachers of geography.

Collyer’s Head of Geography Kate Walters said: “There was a lot of hard work involved in achieving the award; we had to produce an 80-page folder displaying the student’s work, which took a lot of time!”

With only 35 educational establishments across the globe receiving this award, including schools in China and Thailand, Collyer’s exceptional Geography results and high quality teaching has meant that they have become one of the few centres to hold such a prestigious commendation.

Deputy Principal Steve Nicholls was delighted: “We have a superb Geography department who, in addition to the award, have yet again posted some outstanding A-level results this year. Kate Walters and Noami Lask are incredibly talented teachers and their students are an absolute credit to Collyer’s. Congratulations to everyone who has helped achieve the Secondary Quality Mark Geography Award.”
