Nine pupils from Year 7 and 8 went to compete at the Oxfordshire round of the Geographical Association’s WorldWise Quiz hosted by MCS. The three teams Malaku, Cho Oyu and Lhotse put in a great performance over 7 rounds which included a decision making exercise on whether to locate a new potash mine near Whitby, OS map skills, country outlines and a very tricky ‘More or Less’ round.

We had an enjoyable evening applying our geographical knowledge to questions such as “Is the M1 motorway longer than the length of the Grand Canyon?”, “Is Luxembourg larger or smaller than the world’s biggest iceberg?” and “Where is there more rain – London or Brussels?”.

The Year 8 team of Arjun, Joseph and Rupert finished joint fourth out of 21 teams.
