Y12 Geographers in the Yorkshire Dales
Our students enjoyed an opportunity to develop key practical skills in preparations for their courework.
Our Geography students visited Malham Tarn which is widely considered amongst the staff on the trip as "the jewel in Yorkshire's crown". Whilst there they visited the beautiful Malham Cove and learnt profiling techniques to map drumlins within a glaciated landscape. They also developed a range of human fieldwork techniques when they assessed how Settle is perceived by those there. A great deal of time was spent teaching students appropriate fieldwork techniques, statistical tests and how to utilise GIS (Geographic Information System) in order to prepare students for the NEA component of the A Level. The students behaved impeccably throughout the trip and represented themselves and the school superbly. For more photos, please click here.
