In September, Year 8 went on a trip to Swanage, where they looked at Durdle Door, Old Harry Rocks and other coastal landforms.

On the first day, pupils went to Durdle Door, and then walked along the coast to the Lulworth Crumple and Lulworth Cove. Here, they did some fieldwork on sediment size and beach gradient. Next, they went to Swanage Bay and had an ice cream and a snack before going up to Peveril Point and having some information from the coast watch station. Finally, they went back to the accommodation and had some historic tales from a professional story-teller.

On the second day, the pupils walked to Old Harry Rocks, before going to Studland Bay and then heading back home. It was great fun and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their countryside geography field trip.
