Coastal Management

Posted on: 14/10/2015

In order to carry out fieldwork as part of their GCSE course, Year 11 young geographers went to Westward Ho! with Mr Marston, Mrs Bloomberg, Ms Nikki Miller-Marshall and Miss Mounce.   Students studied many topics on the trip, including coastal deposition and landforms, and discussed the formation of the coastal features; they also looked at the process of coastal erosion and defence strategies. 

Students enjoyed making lots of sketches, taking photos and collecting data on wave cut platforms. They also judged the effectiveness of the sea defences and drew their own conclusions about the future of Westward Ho! 

The final step for our young geographers will be to pull their research together to produce their controlled assessment report on Coastal Management.
