Awards for Excellence in Geographical Learning
What are these awards for?
These awards aim to recognise and reward excellence in geographical examinations. It is always appreciated by students, parents and schools when the highest examination achievements are rewarded, and to have that achievement recognised by the national learned society for the subject elevates it further still. We have therefore embarked on an award scheme which promotes the interest and enjoyment of geography by recognising and rewarding high achievers in A Level and GCSE examinations.
The awards are announced in October/November of each year once we have been notified of the outstanding candidates by the Awarding Bodies.
The winning students each receive a cash award and certificate from the Society.
