Upper Wharfedale School at Threshfield has been recognised for its excellent teaching in geography.
The geography team, led by Adam Jackson, were delighted to receive The Secondary Geography Quality Mark from the Geographical Association.
The award encourages schools to reflect on their work and strive for the highest quality in their teaching and all the award winners undergo a rigorous assessment.
The team of Upper Wharfedale assessors were hugely impressed by the way the school embraced new and innovative approaches to teaching geography.
Associate headteacher Sally Sumner said: “The award reflects the dynamic and engaging work at Upper Wharfedale School.
“Additionally our students have been engaged in geographical projects, such as an endangered animals project with our partner school, Kettlewell Primary, and other local feeder primaries.
“I believe there has never been a more important time for all children to study geography. It provides them with the knowledge and understanding they need to live in the modern world.”
The team will be invited to the Geographical Association annual conference, at the University of Surrey next year, to be presented with their award.
