School of Geography

For A Level Students and Teachers

The School of Geography at Queen Mary University of London is committed to supporting and inspiring the teaching and learning of geography in schools and colleges and to making geography an inclusive subject.

We provide a lively and varied programme of events and a wide range of up-to-date resources for secondary school and college students and teachers that includes:

  • Live and recorded taster talks from academic experts in the School of Geography that support A level topic studies and introduce new themes and approaches.
  • Our research showcase events where you can find out what our outstanding undergraduate students have found out in their dissertation projects and research with academic staff
  • An annual conference for A Level geography students (co-organised with the East London Geography Hub)
  • Learning resources on a variety of topics and methods
  • A-level fieldwork days in East London
  • The Stepping Stones Project that supports and inspires school and college students in east London and beyond to apply to study geography at university.

The School of Geography is delighted to host the East London Branch of the Geographical Association, and to work closely with the East London Geography Hub to support geographical education in this part of London.

The branch is chaired by Catherine Nash (Prof. of Human Geography) who works with Denise Freeman of the East London Geography Hub to promote and support study of geography, and Sayda Begum the School Liaison and Widening Participation Officer at the School of Geography, Queen Mary University of London.

Please email Sayda if you would like any further information about any of these activities or if you are a teacher and would like to join our mailing list.
