Y12 Geography Trip to Keswick

This event will take place on 05/06/2024 until 07/06/2024

Coursework, known as the Non-Examined Assessment (NEA), is worth 20% of your son's A Level qualification.


Students will go on a residential trip to Blencathra Field Study Centre (FSC) near Keswick in the Lake District.  This will be a three-day, two-night trip (Wednesday 5th to Friday 7th).  We will travel by school mini-bus.  Accommodation, meals and resources are included in the cost.


Wednesday 5th June: Students meet at school at 07:30. Led by FSC staff, students will study glacial landforms and collect primary data to inform potential NEAs.  Students will then attend workshops to complete statistical analysis.

Thursday 6th June:  Students will investigate the carbon cycle and carbon capture.  

Friday 7th June: Students will spend the day investigating the Water Cycle and rivers.  We aim to return to school at around 17:30.  


Monday 10th and Tuesday 11th June: Students will undertake local human fieldwork for two days in and around Greater Manchester.
