Year 11 Geography Field Trip
On Friday 29th September, 55 Year 11 Geography students travelled to Hornsea and Hull to complete GCSE fieldwork. At Hornsea the students investigated how effective hard engineering is at managing longshore drift. To collect their results, the students completed a groyne survey on Hornsea beach and recorded the beach height either side of the groynes.
The afternoon saw the students visit the contrasting environment of Hull city centre to investigate the impacts of ‘City of Culture 2017’. In the Queen Victoria Square area of the city centre the students questioned members of the public and recorded their responses in the form of a questionnaire. Environmental Quality Surveys were also completed in order to investigate the impact of recent investment on the city centre environment. Students also had to cope with the newly-installed motion activated fountains in Queen Victoria Square – some coping more successfully than others!
Following the trip, the students have recorded their findings in school in the form of a report.
