School of Geography Student Ambassadors at Bow School

Over the past three weeks, Kate Amis, Widening Participation and Schools Liaison Officer for the School of Geography, has been visiting Bow School along with seven School of Geography Ambassadors. Students Katie Wahl, Joanna Watts, Alicia Tayler, Deryn Nannery, Nevroz Fehimli, Rebecca Dixon and Emily Ilett worked with over 275 pupils (10 classes) from Key stage 3 and 4 to engage them in the possibilities that geography can offer them for their progression.

Kate said “Our team from QMUL were fantastic and gave it their all. They proved themselves confident, reliable, adaptable and enthusiastic  both in representing geography and environmental science but also in terms of their pride in our School of Geography and their commitment to sharing their motivating personal stories with these young people.”

After many years of low uptake the Bow Geography Department is delighted to now have three large sets in Year 10 and hopes that their efforts, combined with that of the ambassadors, will help them to equal that intake again this year.
