Year 12 Geography field trip to Norfolk

The Year 12 A-Level Geography field trip to Norfolk took place from Wednesday 20th June to Saturday 23rd June. Six students were accompanied by Mr Peacock and Mr Alison. Students were aiming to find out about how the entire coastline of Norfolk is managed, visiting a total of nine study locations including Cromer, Bacton, Happisburgh, Sea Palling and Great Yarmouth.

One of the students said, “It was great to see in person all the sites we’d studied in class. We all had to devise our own independent inquiry questions but also collected some data working together. It’s really interesting to think about why some places have no funding for sea defences even though they are eroding badly. It’s all part of understanding how the coast works in a system of sediment cells. Also, visiting Sea Palling was so windy!”
