The Geography Field Trip to Brighton was a big success, with 45 students engaged in Physical Geography fieldwork activities on Brighton seafront. They investigated the effectiveness of groynes in reducing longshore drift and drew detailed field-sketches from the Pier looking West. After a quick picnic lunch, it was onto Brighton Marina on the Volks Railway, the oldest electric railway in the UK (and the second oldest in the world).
At the Marina, students studied Human Geography, assessing whether the regeneration of Brighton Marina has been a success through Bi-polar surveys and questionnaires. All of the places visited and fieldwork studied, is going to help our Geographers with their future exams, but most of all, it brought Geography to life for the day. Some students even remarked that it was like being abroad, such was the experience of being somewhere new and exciting.
They were all a delight to take on the trip and represented the school brilliantly with their good manners and polite behaviour on public transport and around the city of Brighton.
