Geography Field Trip - March 2014
On the 19th-21st March, our Year 10 students visited Christchurch Bay on the Hampshire-Dorset border to investigate the impact of coastal processes on both people and the environment.
This involved measuring beach profiles, completing environmental quality assessments, measuring coastal processes and surveying management and recent changes to the cliffs following January’s storms. Students also considered the impact of rising sea levels on this area, in particular Mudeford Spit, Christchurch Bay Harbour, Hengistbury Head and the increased risk of erosion of the soft rock cliffs along the bay.
Our students worked late into the evening on their data presentation although, somehow, we still managed to make time for a bonfire and hot chocolate.
Our students were a delight to take and their exemplary behaviour was a credit to the school. All in all, much fun was had by all on this fun-filled, activity packed trip.
