During the last week in April and first week in May, the Year 10 Geographers were taken to Dawlish Warren to look at coastal processes and coastal defences. The data they collected formed part of the material needed for their exams in Year 11.
It was an interesting time to visit Dawlish Warren as the Environment Agency are currently in the middle of their estimated £14 million coastal defence upgrade project.
The students collected data regarding long shore drift and visitors’ opinions of the defences in place.
It was a worthwhile couple of days and the pupils behaved impeccably. Their manners were noted by the kiosk manager, who stated that they were ‘a lovely polite group of youngsters!’
Once all the data had been collected, there was even time for a portion of well deserved cheesy chips!
