Geography – Learning to make a world of difference
Date: 04 Feb 2011
This report draws from visits to 91 primary and 90 secondary schools (including one special school) in England between 2007 and 2010. It evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of geography in these schools and assesses the challenges faced by the subject today. Geography was flourishing in a minority of the schools visited and was under pressure in the rest. The report describes the value of learning geography and what needs to be done to reverse its decline. It builds on the 2008 Ofsted report, Geography in schools: changing practice.
A revised draft of this report was published on 13 April 2011.
