Stockport Grammar geographers triumph in WorldWise Quiz


Fifth year pupils at Stockport Grammar School have won the Geographical Association’s North West Regionals WorldWise Quiz – the third time the school has won the competition in the last three years entered.

Cam Wylie, Zara Latif and Oliver Ensor-Adams demonstrated their great geographical knowledge as they competed against 12 other schools from across the region at the new Brooks Building at Manchester Metropolitan University’s Birley Fields.

The team from Stockport Grammar won the competition with 85 points from 100 – eight ahead of their nearest rivals.

Cam, Zara and Oliver were chosen from fourth and fifth year pupils by a trial quiz after expertly displaying the knowledge they had gained from their GCSE modules and their own wider reading.

Head of geography, Mr Alex Cooke commented: “We are very proud of Cam, Oliver and Zara – three brilliant geographers with excellent knowledge of current affairs.”

Zara added: “Although it was a quite a competitive day, everybody from the other teams were [sic] nice and I’m proud that we could continue the school’s winning streak.

“I really like everything I’m learning in Geography for my GCSE and I’m enjoying it so much that I hope to carry on studying it at A Level.”
