The Year 7 students enjoyed a trip to Hunstanton where they were investigating coastal processes and management strategies. Virtually the entire year group went on the trip which was organised to allow students to develop their understanding of geography and apply what they have learnt in the classroom to the world that they live in.
As well as seeing a typical English coastal town, students saw the effects of the recent winter storms, from the erosion of the distinctive striated cliffs to the impacts of flooding on local businesses.
Head of Geography Mr Glesinger said ‘This was a great opportunity for students to see how a seaside resort is managed, to see what processes shape our coasts as well as getting the opportunity to see what happens in the world when things go wrong. We will continue to explore these themes back in the classroom as students adopt the role of decision makers in order to manage the coast more effectively. The students were impeccably behaved and were a credit to themselves and to the school; these sentiments were shared by members of the public who approached me to compliment the students!’
