During the first week of March, our Year 12 geography students visited the Lake District National Park to collect data for their non-exam assessment – a piece of coursework that involves students conducting their own geographical investigation, worth 20 % of their final grade.
The field trip was hosted by the Field Studies Council in Blencathra, where students stayed for four nights surrounded by the striking scenery of the North Lakes.
The trip gave students the opportunity to practice lots of geographical fieldwork techniques and included a scenic walk to Easedale Tarn and a visit to the market town of Keswick.
The trip ended on a high with a snowy mountain walk to soak in magnificent views of Scafell Pike and Helvellyn.
Well done to all Year 12 geography students for getting stuck in and embracing their inner geographer!
