Y13 Geography Field Trip

Full CalendarSixth FormSchool Trips

This event will take place on 16/09/2019 until 19/09/2019.

The Year 13 A Level Geography group will be going on a compulsory residential Field trip to Swanage, Dorset, for four days. The trip is essential to gather data for their A level coursework investigation which is worth 20% of their total mark. The wider educational purpose of this trip is to plan, practise and analyse fieldwork techniques. This trip is compulsory and failure to attend will leave students at a great disadvantage in terms of an important section of their overall A-Level exam.

We will be meeting at Canons High School on Monday 16th September 2019 at 7.00am prompt, and returning to Canons around 6pm on Thursday 19th 2019. We will travelling by minibus to and from the centre, which is Swanage, Dorset.

Two members of staff will be accompanying the group as well as specialist teachers from the centre who will be taking the sessions. The students will be supervised at all times, but may not be accompanied at all times. Students will sleep in single sex rooms as appropriate.

For this residential field trip, there is no cost to students or their families. As part of this, all food (suitable for those of all dietary requirements), transport and accommodation is included, however, students will need a packed lunch for the first day. On the Monday we will be commencing practical work as soon as we reach our destination. For that reason students must be dressed appropriately for field work on a windy beach when they arrive on Saturday morning. For example wearing wellies, warm cloths and waterproofs.
