Redland High Geography Department celebrates Centre of Excellence Award

The Geography Department at Redland High School was delighted to celebrate being awarded the Secondary Geography Quality Mark by The Geographical Association, and has become the only school in Bristol to achieve ‘Centre of Excellence’ status.

The SGQM award process encourages and supports schools to reflect on their work and strive for the highest quality in their teaching. All the award winners undergo a rigorous moderation process and the team of assessors were hugely impressed by the manner in which Redland High School is continuing to embrace new and innovative approaches to teaching Geography. The Centre of Excellence Award recognises the School’s contribution to disseminating quality approaches to the teaching of geography and Redland High is now one of only 36 Centre of Excellence schools in the UK.

Mrs Caroline Bateson, Headmistress at Redland High School, said, “I am extremely proud of the Department’s achievement which is the culmination of years of hard work. Mrs Neil, Head of Geography, is an enthusiastic and inspiring curriculum leader and teacher, demonstrated by the fact that this year 70% of our GCSE Geography students achieved A*/A grades, and I am delighted that her Department has been recognised by The Geographical Association as a Centre of Excellence.”
