Detail

This Ofsted survey report draws from visits to 91 primary and 90 secondary schools (including one special school) in England between 2007 and 2010. 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.
