20 GCSE students spent three days in Dorset visiting the Studland Beach National Nature Reserve, one of the finest coastal habitats on the south coast. Other equally stunning locations visited over the course of our three day stay were Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door, and Boscombe Pier, all of these destinations offered students a wealth of hands-on geography inspiration.

Students experienced a fantastic educational tour that provided them with a unique opportunity to broaden their horizons and experiences beyond the local communities. From this, they immersed themselves in their subject matter and discovered the real-world implications of topics such as coastal erosion, plate tectonics, and regeneration covered as part of their GCSE.

The trip, moreover, presented a perfect opportunity for the group to collect vital data for their upcoming GCSE in the summer term.

A memorable trip for all, and no doubt, a powerful trip for any of our budding geographers!
