Rex Walford

Rex Walford

The GA Rex Walford Geography Student Teacher Award recognises inspirational and innovative geography teaching practice (at primary or secondary level) developed by an individual during their period of ITE. It takes its cue from Rex’s remarkable contribution to geography ITE in the UK over many years.

An idea of the high regard in which Rex was held can be gained from the many testimonials and memories on the GA website. We read of a man of unquenchable enthusiasm and optimism, and a highly gifted teacher.
