Year 9 students looked at regeneration and migration when the visited Leicester on a humanities field trip. They visited six different sites across the city looking at factors including tourism and how the city has developed, especially in the recent past. It is the first time that this field trip has taken place and a large cohort of 107 students completed workbooks and environmental questionnaires.

Mr Glesinger said: ‘The students investigated how migration has affected the city centre and how its redevelopment has provided opportunities for tourism, especially with the discovery of Richard III and his reburial at the Cathedral. Other areas, such as the shopping centre, have been redeveloped and improved leading to a boost in the local economy. It was an intensive day where the students visited many different areas of interest walking about eight and a half kilometres through the city. The evidence they gathered will now be used for their case studies so they gained a great deal from the trip.’
