Geography Trip to Hornsea
Forty-one students descended on the quiet East Yorkshire coastal resort of Hornsea to conduct the two compulsory coursework elements of their GCSE. The sun was shining when we finally arrived, cows on the road near Beverley causing delay.The students were able to spend the morning completing the human fieldwork by surveying the town, asking questionnaires, conducting traffic and environmental surveys to ascertain the extent of the tourist opportunities in the town. A break for fish and chips on the sea front provided fuel for the afternoon on the beach to complete the physical enquiry. The students completed groyne measurements, wave frequency, load movement and pebble analysis to research the impact of groynes on longshore drift. After two hours on the beach there was time to go in the arcade and have a group photo before the long drive home.
Every single student on the trip was impeccable; completing all their work but also displaying excellent behaviour and manners, especially in the town when speaking to the public.News & Events
