Digimap for Schools reached a fantastic milestone last week with the 1000th secondary school subscriber.

The secondary school which became the one thousandth subscriber was Chilton Trinity School from Bridgwater in Somerset. Miss Sophie Carruthers, a Geography teacher at Chilton Trinity School added: “I subscribed as I am setting up the Duke of Edinburgh at Chilton Trinity and having used Digimap for Schools last year, at a previous school, I know how useful it is for mapping routes. In addition to this I teach Geography and we had limited resources for including GIS in our curriculum – Digimap for Schools will be a great addition to the classroom.”

The whole Digimap for Schools team are incredibly proud of this achievement, in addition to the over 1450 primary schools subscribed across Great Britain who are all accessing Ordnance Survey modern and historic maps every day.
