The Lower Sixth returned this week from a three-day residential trip in Minehead that forms an important part of the A-level Geography course.
Activities included surveying the effectiveness of sea defences and analysing beach sediment along the Somerset coast, investigating the identity of local towns, and using the Survey123 App to record their data. Evenings were spent learning how to present and analyse data using a variety of techniques including Geographical Information Systems.
On the way home the group was treated to an inspirational talk by a Director of The Onion Collective who gave an insight into planning careers and explained how they are helping to regenerate the town of Watchet through community-led initiatives. Good fun was had by all despite some wet weather on the second day.
