GA Branches

Ocean Academy field trip to sea

There are a number of branches nationwide and internationally that are affiliated to the Geographical Association. GA branches are all different but generally host lectures and events for geography teachers and secondary students.

If you have any questions about setting up a branch or running a branch, please contact Rob Morris – Branches Networking Officer.

Zoom into the map to find branches within a region. If there isn’t already a branch near you and you’re interested in setting one up, find out how to set up a branch here.

You can find out what events GA Branches and other GA networks have coming up by looking at our Networking Calendar.
