King’s Ely has been awarded the Centre of Excellence award by the Geographical Association - the highest accolade a school can receive in the subject.

The prestigious award recognises a department’s contribution to quality Geography, both within and beyond the school, and has only been awarded to 40 schools in the country.

Over the past few years, the Geography department at King’s Ely has integrated iPads into the curriculum, built a departmental website and taken students to Iceland and China, as well as establishing the Geography Ambassador group to support those students interested in a geography related career.

Principal of King’s Ely, Sue Freestone, said: “21st century Geography is one of the most exciting subjects a pupil can study.

“It is gratifying to have the excellence of the work our geographers are doing recognised by the association.”
