Our Outreach and Student Recruitment teams work with schools and colleges to help students explore the world of higher education and decide on the best route for their future. We work particularly closely with state schools in the West Midlands on a range of outreach activities to raise aspirations, improve motivation and encourage students to consider university.

Explore the Earth Sciences Virtual Classroom
The Lapworth Museum of Geology have hosted visits for Key stage 5 pupils in past years, to help provide targeted learning associated with the Geography and Geology curriculum. As direct visits are currently not possible, we would like to offer this to schools as a bespoke virtual classroom. The potential topics are outlined below, but if there is something specific you would like us to cover please let us know and we will try to find the expertise to provide some specialist input.
Explore Geography Day
This event, for both teachers and A-Level students is free of charge with a maximum booking size of 5 students per school. Pupils will be expected to bring their own lunch. Alternatively, there is a café near to the event where food can be purchased. Further information will be released in due course.

We are inviting Young Geographers (studying Geography at Key Stage 3, 4 or 5) to enter our photography competition. This Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences (GEES) photography competition is open to all interpretations of geography, spanning human and physical environments. Further information will be released in due course.
RGS Geography Ambassadors
