The department is well organised with teaching resources and information regarding the new specifications. A wide range of teaching and learning strategies are used in the delivery of Geography, which aim to intrigue, inspire and create a love for learning in Geography. Fieldwork opportunities are offered across the key stages.
If you join us, you will benefit from:

About Tudor Grange Academy, Solihull
Tudor Grange Academy is an outstanding 11 – 18 comprehensive school situated in South Solihull with 1643 students (including 300 in the sixth form). The school was inspected by Ofsted in June 2014 who judged it to be outstanding.
Tudor Grange is committed to delivering a high quality educational experience for all its students; it is also committed to sharing its experience and expertise with other educational institutions to raise attainment for all students. We have recently been designated as a Teaching School Hub (one of 87 nationally). The Teaching School Hub will ensure that teachers and leaders at all stages of their career (from early career to executive leadership) have access to high quality, research-led professional development. We have also been awarded World Class School status.
Tudor Grange Academy in Solihull has always been a beacon of excellence. Its focus on continuous improvement and belief that high quality teaching and learning is at the core of great schools has ensured that it has maintained its outstanding provision year on year.
Having secured outstanding provision for the students in their care, the Governors of Tudor Grange School, as it was, developed an ambition: every child deserves an outstanding education, not just the children within their school. They supported staff within Tudor Grange to engage fully in a wide range of national and international partnerships focussed on improving provision in schools. The Academies programme then provided an opportunity for them to sponsor a school in challenging circumstances, taking full responsibility for the quality of this provision and therefore potentially enabling them to realise their ambition.
In September 2009 Tudor Grange School, Solihull sponsored Tudor Grange Academy Worcester. The school is now oversubscribed and the school of choice within its local community. This successful sponsorship and effective school to school collaboration gave rise to the vision for Tudor Grange Academies Trust: a group working together in a model of meaningful, focused collaboration to achieve excellence in their schools.
The Trust, as at April 2021, is a Trust of eleven schools: five secondary schools, one all through academy and five primary academies. Restlessness characterises all our academies: we are not afraid to challenge complacency and weaknesses identified are seen as opportunities to improve, the energy and drive for the ceaseless journey comes from our key ambition: ‘Every child deserves an outstanding education.’
Working within a Trust offers opportunities for up to date training, cross curricular working, bespoke professional development pathways. All staff are encouraged to better themselves and we collectively celebrate success in a vibrant and healthy working community.
