Geography pupils study Keswick’s rivers and mountains

Geography pupils in the Newlands Valley

The Lake District was the destination for Geography pupils in the lower sixth form as they travelled to Keswick for two days of AS-level field work in its surrounding rivers and mountains.

Pupils spent their first morning studying and measuring the rivers in the Newlands Valley before reviewing Keswick’s flood defences and prevention strategies. On their second day, the group walked to Easedale Tarn to explore its glacial and post glacial landscapes.

The trip formed part of pupils’ AS-level physical Geography field work and provides invaluable preparation for next summer’s skills examination.
