Geographers headed to the beautiful Welsh coast to develop key research skills as part of their A level course.

The students carried out various activities at Llandudno in North Wales, including calculating beach profiles, investigating weathering and mass movement on the Little Orme cliffs, and seeing how different stretches of the coast are protected from the power of the sea.

Head of Geography, Mr Grundy, said the trip was a great success and had proved to be excellent preparation for the individual geographical investigations to be conducted later in the year. “The relic landforms here are truly outstanding,” he added.

The fieldwork is the first of four compulsory days over the two year course, culminating in students producing a 3,000 word piece of coursework in their upper sixth year.
