The Geography Department is very proud of the two teams who competed recently in the Chester and NorthWest WorldWise competition and the North Wales WelshWise competition run by The Geographical Association. In the WorldWise competition, just before Christmas, the teams were first and third out of 20 teams. This week, the WelshWise competition saw them gaining first and second place against schools from North Wales. The competitions, which take place annually, pitch teams against one other over eight rounds of geographical questions including fieldwork and map work. Current geographical news as well as geographical landforms, terminology and techniques are also examined and teams have to master all these areas of geographical knowledge in order to be in with a chance of winning.
