GCSE Geography Residential Field Trip to Swanage

On the 12th -15th September, 16 Year 11 geography students went on a quest to find amazing views on the edge of the British Isles.

 On the 12th -15th September, 16 Year 11 geography students went on a quest to find amazing views on the edge of the British Isles. Although we had to work hard, we had a brilliant time! We did loads of walking (we’re talking miles and miles!) but it was all worth it just to see the stunning landscapes and breath-taking views of Dorset. Visits included: Old Harry’s rocks, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door, Studland Bay and many, many more (including a ghost village). We all ended up with sore feet and worn out legs, and some of us even ended up with wet clothes! There were disputes about who would take showers first and friendships were challenged! One of the main purposes of the visit was to collect fieldwork data for our forthcoming controlled assessment, which we did successfully. We all arrived back safely in London (this time!) but we were sleepy. We would all like to thank the Geography Department for organising the trip (Ms Rockell, Mr Wright and Mr Simpson) and for taking us to Swanage and making the trip truly worthwhile. All in all, we had a fantastic time and had loads of banter!
