  • We particularly liked the topics that feature in this book as they tie in directly with those we've chosen for our Year 7 and Year 8 SOW based on the new Programmes of Study, especially geological timescales, glaciers, Africa, and the Horn of Africa. - Sallyanne Summers, Lode Heath School
  • The geog.1 textbook looks very good. Diverse range of topics which we hope will be interesting for Year 7 pupils. The main difficulty has been in deciding what to leave out of our scheme of work as we don't have time to cover it all. Loads of activities to choose from so individual teachers can tailor their lessons to the characteristics of each class. - Jim Gardner, Dame Allan's Boys' School, Newcastle
  • One of the most exciting KS3 books I have come across in twenty-six years of teaching. - Mr Thomson, Geography Teacher, Gosport, on previous edition
  • This is a really good series of books for KS3. The book is appealing to kids and nicely graded. There are plenty of bright images and the content is bang up to date so the case studies are relevant. The layout is clear and appealing and the exercises are practical and, for the most part, interesting. It's probably my favourite KS3 geography resource. - 5 Star Amazon Review
