Consilium's Inaugral Young Geographer Competition Sees Incredible Entries Across the Trust

Our first ever Young Geographer of the Year Competition has come to a close and we have received some fantastic entries from across the Trust!

The entries were anonymised and judged by the Central Team, who were overwhelmed by the entries and creativity of our students.
