Year 12 Geography Field Trip to Cumbria

Last week, the Year 12 Geography students went to Kendal and Bowness in Cumbria to study the changing lifestyles of rural communities over time and the impact of development in these areas.

They were practising skills required for their Non-examined assessment (coursework) and testing out some hypotheses to suit the topic of changing places.  They had a look around the Lakeland museum for rural life with question booklets relating to how the area has changed and the impact of this on rural communities.  They then carried out a series of surveys in Kendal and Bowness town that were useful to highlight the issues studied in their syllabus and possibly be used in future coursework.
