New figures from Ofqual show that entries for geography GCSE and A Level have continued to grow, and are now at their highest levels for at least 15 years.
This summer over 245,000 pupils sat a geography examination at GCSE level and almost 38,000 at A Level.
Dr Rita Gardner, the Society’s Director, said:
“This is wonderful news and continues the very positive growth in our subject since 2010.
I am delighted to see even more young people gain the important benefits that geography can provide them: key knowledge and understanding about people, places and environments; subject specific skills which help them investigate the world; and a geographer’s curiosity about the processes that are shaping our planet and our lives.”
The Society congratulates all of the geography teachers who have worked hard to encourage and support their pupils.
