The Geography Department kicked off the new school year with a much-needed fieldtrip! It had been a long time coming due to Covid postponing our plans from last year. The Year 11 and 12 Geographers spent the day in the glorious sunshine wading in Burbage Brook in the Peak District. The students were collecting data on a variety of river characteristics to see how they change with distance downstream. The pupils worked really well in their groups and despite a few of them getting submerged, we rounded off the day with a well-deserved ice cream. The Geography Department are hopeful that we will be able to go on more fieldtrips this year, so watch this space.
In other news the Geography Department is nicely settled into our new classrooms in the old Garne’s building and we are enjoying using our newly refurbished rooms and utilising our new technology.
