The Geographical Association (GA) recently announced the Secondary Geography Quality Mark (SGQM) awardees September 2017.

Westholme are very proud to have been awarded the Secondary Geography Quality Mark. This is a prestigious award which recognises quality and progress in geography leadership, curriculum development and learning and teaching in schools.

All the award winners undergo a rigorous moderation process, and the team of assessors were hugely impressed by the manner in which all are continuing to embrace new and innovative approaches to teaching geography.

The SGQM recognises student attainment, progress and achievement in geographical knowledge, understanding, values and skills, and sets expectations about the quality of teaching in geography. It promotes effective subject leadership and management, helping subject leaders raise the standards of geography in their schools.

Congratulations to all the teachers and students in our Geography department whose hard work and enthusiasm has contributed to this excellent achievement.
