INVESTIGATING NEWHAVEN, the RIVER THAMES and MARGATE

Year 13 Geography students have been conducting a coastal investigation in East Sussex in preparation for their Geographical Skills exam paper.

They collected raw data to find out if and how Harbour Arm affected transportation and the formation of landforms in Newhaven.

The students received expert guidance from Field Studies Council tutors and used professional equipment to help conduct their investigation.

The Year 13 Geographers also took a trip to the River Thames. With the help of  the Thames Explorer Trust, students investigated how the river had changed over time and whether it is bio-diverse and a good habitat for wildlife.

Not to be outdone, Year 11 Geography students visited Margate to investigate the demographic and economic features of the area.
