Spa students head south for geography field trip

First published in News

GEOGRAPHY students from Droitwich Spa High School have set out on a field trip to Dorset.

A group of 72 youngsters from the Briar Mill school have travelled south to Swanage to undertake an important part of their GCSE fieldwork.

The students, accompanied by four members of staff, will be looking at the human geography of the town of Bournemouth by comparing the quality of life for people in two contrasting areas of the town, as well as the physical geography of the Jurassic Coastline.

Miss Jenny Ruddick, who has organised the trip, said: “This is a great opportunity for the students to experience for themselves the ideas we teach them in the classroom. Trips like this really help to bring the subject to life and certainly help the students to do better in their exams.”

In addition to working in Bournemouth, the students will be visiting Studland Bay, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door to observe bay formations.
