GEO (Geography Education Online) is an innovative new website created by the Geographical Association (GA), for students studying for GCSE geography, A level geography or equivalent qualifications. GEO is designed to offer young geographers a new and engaging way to extend their geographical thinking and support examination success in 2021 and beyond.

GEO is made possible by a grant from Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency. Innovate UK is part of UK Research and Innovation. Innovate UK are funding a wide range of new ideas to help overcome the disruption caused globally by COVID-19, including the disruption caused to geography education.

Students must be aged 14 or over in order to do this. Please see the details of how we protect your data in our privacy policy. These events are also available to access as recordings in the events archive. Please note that students are expected to conduct themselves as they would in class and inappropriate comments will be deleted from the chat area. 
  • interactive subject content comprising online web enquiries and accompanying quizzes.
