Year 10 geography trip to swanage
9th - 13th July 2018
In July, 114 Year 10 Geography students undertook a 3 day residential fieldtrip in Swanage, Dorset. This was the perfect location to study the physical and human geography of the Jurassic Coast.
Our students had the fantastic opportunity to visit places they had studied at school. Sites includes the unique sand dune ecosystem of Studland, the tourist honeypot site of Swanage town and the fascinating eroded headland of Old Harry Rock (renamed Old Harry Kane Rock by the students!)
During these few days our GCSE Geographers worked hard honing their fieldwork technique skills which will prove invaluable in next summer’s exam.
The positive attitude of our students plus their excellent behaviour and of course , the glorious weather, made this geography trip a great success!
Many thanks goes to the accompanying staff who became temporary members of the Geography Department.
