Pupils in Year 8 spent two days down on the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset as part of their studies on coastal geomorphology. Being able to see up close Durdle Door, Stair Hole and Lulworth Cove on the first day, and Swanage Bay, Old Harry Rocks and Studland Bay on the second, should help them to appreciate real examples of the kinds of erosional and depositional features that they are studying in the classroom in geography. A visit to the National Coastwatch lookout at Peveril Point, including an informative talk from Stuart, the chief officer, gave them a valuable insight into local geology, weather and tidal systems, marine activity and the role of this valuable institution. We also enjoyed time on the beach and the attractions of the ever popular seaside town of Swanage.
