Wilmington Grammar School for Girls, in Parsons Lane, has achieved the Secondary Geography Quality Mark (SGQM) in recognition of excellence in teaching and learning in the subject.

Head of geography Garry Simons said: “We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the coveted Centre of Excellence status by The Geography Association, we are immensely proud of our department and the achievements of our students.”

The moderation team were impressed by the manner in which Wilmington Grammar embrace new and innovative approaches to teaching geography and by the support they have provided to other schools’ geography departments in Kent.

In 2018, only nine schools were awarded the coveted Centre of Excellence status.

The SGQM is a prestigious award that recognises quality and progress in geography leadership, curriculum development and learning and teaching in schools.
