At Merchant Taylors’ Junior School we feel that Geography is more than knowing where places are to be found. We develop geographical skills, including the use of maps and photographs, enquiry about our own and different localities, investigating on field visits, where appropriate.

We develop knowledge of places and environments locally and throughout the world. The boys are involved in a range of problem solving and investigative work both inside and outside of the classroom.

As the pupils study geography they will learn about different societies and cultures, considering how their actions and values can change the environment.

In 2013, Merchant Taylors’ Junior Boys’ School were awarded The PGQM Silver Award. Silver award schools ‘lead effective whole school approaches that support excellence in geography’.
