KS3 Geography - Making Geography Popular

Description

Across the country the numbers of students opting to take geography is falling. Harlington Upper School is bucking the trend. Two thirds of their students choose to study geography at GCSE and they have a thriving and successful A-level course.

How did they successfully raise the status of the subject within the school?

We investigate the strategies that the department used in order to make geography a popular subject, from school trips to friendly and approachable staff.

Making Geography Popular includes tactics such as:

  • Encouraging sixth form students to give up their study period to help younger students with their work
  • Helping pupils see beyond academic qualifications
  • Encouraging less able students to take an entry level qualification
