Pupils Enjoy Geography Field Trip South of the County

A group of Year 10 pupils recently visited Church Stretton for a Geography Field Trip, with the aim to look at the impact of tourism in the town.

As part of their GCSE controlled assessment task the group of 43 pupils were completing field work. Part of the day was spent making a Pedestrian and Traffic count and time was spent land use mapping and making a service study, when they looked at whether the services available in the town are aimed at tourists or local residents.

Head of Geography, Rhiann Waddams, commented, 'Pupils also completed a unique method, many of which involved carrying out a questionnaire. Whilst there was torrential rain back at school, the micro climate in Church Stretton was kind to the pupils and they are now writing up the results of their investigations completed during their busy field visit'.
