The Secondary Geography Quality Mark and Centre of Excellence reflects the high level of geography education students at FCC receive.

The department has been working towards this award for the last academic year, undertaking an assessment framework to review the geography provided at FCC. This collaborative process enabled the teachers to assess the standards and provide a portfolio of evidence that supported all areas that follow a structure of Intent, Implementation and Impact (Ofsted framework). The evidence is assessed by the Geographical Association and judged against a high-level set of criteria to ensure rigour in the awarding process.

The department supports all students to achieve and feedback to students is geography-specific, innovative and responsive to change. There are innovative approaches to classroom learning. Opportunities for the development of geographical skills are widespread, and inclusive fieldwork is clearly well-established and embedded within their curriculum.”

Mrs Bloomfield, assistant headteacher, said: “Under the excellent guidance from Gayle Sloggett (curriculum leader for geography) and her department, FCC were able to complete a comprehensive evidence portfolio to achieve this award, which we will have until 2025. Now we have the award we want to move further forward and provide students with more virtual, onsite and off-site experiences to enhance what they learn within the curriculum. Well done to the department and also to our geography students who work hard and show great enthusiasm for the projects and curriculum we run at Felpham across year groups.”
