As part of their A level curriculum studies, L6 (Year 12) Geographers from Highclare Independent Senior School in Erdington, enjoyed a five day residential visit to the Cranedale Centre in North Yorkshire.
Their studies included emotional mapping and consideration of artistic representation of place in Scarborough, and an investigation into carbon and water cycles in two contrasting drainage basins in Dalby Forest. Included in the trip were visits to the Holderness Coast which were particularly useful for students as this area is the focus of their AS coastal work in the classroom.
Mrs Suzanne Cassell, Assistant Head of Highclare Senior School, said “the trip was a fantastic success and the behaviour of the students was impeccable. We were very lucky indeed with the weather and it has proved to be a great learning experience.”
