AS Geography fieldtrip to Yorkshire
2 May 2012
During the Easter holidays, 30 AS Geographers from the Lower Sixth ventured to the Yorkshire Wolds to stay in a small isolated hamlet called Kirby Grindalythe. The group stayed at the impressive Cranedale Centre, well known for its superb food, excellent accommodation and lack of mobile phone reception. It is ideally suited for geographical investigation and the students spent the week exploring soils and slopes on the North Yorkshire moors, dereliction and regeneration in Hull, coastal scenery at Flamborough Head and woodland ecosystems in Dalby Forest. Despite the rainfall the pupils worked enthusiastically during the day and gained some excellent case study knowledge for their AS examinations this summer and skills for their A2 course next year. In the evenings, there was time for recreation, geographical follow up and even some AS revision classes held by Perse staff.
