GCSE Geography Coursework

Posted on: 30/09/2016

In order to carry out fieldwork as part of their GCSE course, Year 11 geographers went to Westward Ho! with Mrs Moores, Miss Cottle-Hunkin, Mr Berry and Mr Avery. 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. Monday's group braved the wind and rain to collect their data, however we had to cut the trip short due to worsening weather conditions.

Students enjoyed making lots of sketches, taking photos and collecting data on the wave cut platforms and the pebble ridge. 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 geographers will be to pull their research together to produce their controlled assessment report on Coastal Management.
