Last week, Year 11 Geography pupils made the short trip to a mist-covered River Chess to take the skills and knowledge acquired in class into a practical environment.

One of the many ways our teachers encourage happy learning and deeper engagement is by taking pupils on immersive trips and activities.

The group spent the day measuring the rivers’ constantly changing characteristics, using flow meters to measure velocity, width, and depth, and taking their data back to school to compare results and make accurate calculations.

Pupils even got an impromptu outdoor lesson from Mrs Freeman, Head of Sixth Form.

This is an excellent opportunity for the pupils to experience Geography outside of the classroom

Activities such as these form the basis for these pupils’ geographical applications exam papers, and we wish them all the best as they continue preparing for their upcoming GCSEs.
