Subject association is a long way from being short-handed

I would like to say how important I feel membership of the Geographical Association is - both for myself and my school, which is a primary.

Having completed a geography degree eight years ago, I am now in the position of leading the subject at the school. I find the magazines from the association really useful for keeping me up to date with the latest developments in the subject, and as a way of sharing good ideas.

The primary geography “quality mark” has also had a huge impact on the staff and pupils in our school. We achieved silver during the national trial, and then gold last year.

The association has inspired a lot of our school’s recent work and I feel that, without its support, we would not be in the excellent position in which we now find ourselves.
