Y12 Geography Trip

Y12 Geography Trip

On Friday 31st January, 19 Year 12 Geographers spent an afternoon in Peterborough carrying out primary research for their fieldwork, which is a compulsory element of the A/S level course. 

Students were focusing on data collection to support their classroom learning of the ‘Changing Places’ topic. The aim of their investigation was to assess economic and demographic changes in and around Gladstone Street, which is close to the city centre. They undertook environmental quality surveys at different points along the street, as well as making notes about economic and demographic features of the area. They also spent time in and around Cathedral Square, where they carried out questionnaires with members of the public and collected leaflets and advertising material to create a mood-board when back at school. The trip proved an extremely valuable experience for the students, who were able to see first hand the characteristics of the area that they’d learnt about in class. Students were excellently behaved and represented Bourne Academy very well.
