Geographers develop field skills in Dorset

By Kirsty Layton, Head of Geography

Following the AS exams, 6.1 geographers hit Dorset this week to develop their field skills in order to gather data for the A2 Geographical Skills exam in 6.2. During the visit, students completed sand dune transects, collecting height and pH readings together with vegetation diversity data in order to study the sand dune ecosystem. We had the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Studland Bay before heading for a well-earned lunch stop near Ballard Point. This trip highlights the importance of fieldwork in Geography – learning beyond the bounds of the classroom! View photos.
