An extremely successful past student from St George’s Academy, Eve Russell, joined our Year 12 geographers for an online presentation to discuss post 18 geography options.
Eve Russell, a previous Young Geographer of the Year winner (a national prize ran by the Royal Geographical Society) and now a geography student at the King’s College London, spoke to our students on behalf of the Royal Geographical Society’s Ambassador Scheme. The scheme is designed to welcome new students to the world of geography outside of secondary school level education and to show them what geography has to offer at the next level.
Eve spoke enthusiastically about her experience and the numerous options available to our students after their 6th form studies. These options include those found at university but also careers that are associated with geography.
It was clear that many of our students thoroughly enjoyed the meeting, with some seeing it as an eye-opening opportunity in understanding where studying geography in their future could take them. Students also had the opportunity to ask a range of questions, with some of their questions centred around the Non-Examination Assessment route.
The geography department would like to thank Eve Russell for her effort and time in promoting geography to our students.
If you or your child are considering taking geography as a GCSE option, Eve has also been kind enough to create a video on what the subject can offer and lead to.
