GEOGRAPHY FIELDTRIPS

Geography fieldtrips help students to better understand and retain areas of the geography curriculum that they were taught inside the classroom. During the trip, students investigate geographical issues by collecting primary data and by observation. After the fieldtrip, students learn how to analyse and evaluate the information they have collected. These learning experiences are a crucial part of their geography education but also help students to develop general skills of planning, observation, analysis and critical thinking.

Fieldtrips are scheduled for students both in Year 10 and Year 11. Unit 4 of the GCSE examination (Edexcel), the Controlled Assessment, is based on fieldwork.

A Level
