GCSE Geography Field Trip

On Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th November, 23 GCSE geography students from Year 10 and Year 11 gave up their weekend to enjoy an amazing geographical experience at oHHHothersall Lodge Field Study Centre. On Saturday, they went to the Trough of Bowland to investigate the changes along the River Wyre from the source to the mouth.

The evening was spent very traditionally, firstly carrying out some follow up work in the classroom, followed by playing games and enjoying socialising in the games room – thanks to an old fashioned tuck shop, and poor mobile phone reception.

After an early Sunday morning breakfast, they headed to the coast to study first hand the different approaches to defending the Blackpool and Lytham coastline, with both hard and soft engineering techniques. Staff and students really enjoyed the whole weekend. A big thank you to all who kindly helped make this weekend a success.
