Geographers measure rivers and study glacial scenery in the Lake District

Pupils in the Lake District

Our lower sixth Geography pupils headed to the Blencathra field studies centre in the Lake District last week to collect river data as part of their A-level syllabus.

In suitably wet weather, our geographers also studied Keswick’s new £6 million flood defence system, built as a result of the town’s floods in 2009.

The second day was spent observing the glacial landforms around Easedale Tarn. The area has some classic glacial scenery, including u-shaped valleys, misfit streams and a corrie, which all helps our pupils understand some of the features they study as part of the course.
