GCSE Geography trip to Osmington Bay
From Durdle Door to Lulworth Cove, from coast defences in Lyme Regis to regeneration in Weymouth, Mr Rowe led 66 students on an amazing Geography trip (May 10-12).
This trip was created to meet the fieldwork component of the new GCSE AQA Geography syllabus. It also allowed for revision of key information on coastal features, including coastal processes, defences and settlements.
The weather was sublime and many of the beaches and coastal towns were packed - unusually for the UK in May! However there was work to be done; experiencing the world famous Lulworth crumple, profiling Groynes, taking in the beautiful Man of War cove, viewing the ingenious cliff stabilisation at Lyme Regis, exploring the Jurassic coastline, checking out the brilliantly designed curved sea walls, and much much more!
