Geographical Association World Wise Quiz

Last week 3 teams from TCS took part in the Geographical Association World Wise Quiz at Torquay Boys Grammar School. It was our first time entering the quiz and students have already said they want to compete again next year. We did not win but we did not come last either, but most importantly, the students (and staff) had a great experience! The lead up to the quiz was great fun and meant that the geography department here at TCS were able to spend some time with some of TCS’s best geographers. We look forward to prepping for next year already.

The quiz itself is extremely challenging and requires students to display a range of geographical skills and understanding. We are especially proud of those that participated considering they are in year 8 & 9 yet most of the quiz is aimed at A-Level standard. Those involved were Izzy Price, Layla Snell, Joshua Dargen, Sophie Tapp, Lauren Tapp, Victoria Jeffs, Connor Walsh, Lily Watts and Oscar Leach.

A big thank you to Mr Johns and Miss Pedder for support and to Torquay Boys Grammar for hosting.
