Field trips offer our students the opportunity to enhance their learning experience away from their regular college environment. It provides a setting for them to learn in a hands-on and interactive manner while helping them develop critical skills, such as teamwork.
Every year, numerous field trips are organised to increase students’ understanding of and exposure to curriculum related topics.
Geography Field Trip: Osmington Bay Dorset
This dynamic coastal environment provided the students with plentiful resources from which to collect data. The weather can only be described as ‘dismal with heavy rain and cold winds’, making the data collection very challenging. However, the group persevered and stayed positive, working together to collect a range of data including beach profiles, measuring longshore drift, conducting environmental quality surveys, and assessing coastal management strategies. Despite the poor conditions the students had a successful day of data collection with a substantial range of primary data for their independent investigations.

A varied programme of events in London filled a fun-packed two days for our GCSE students. They visited the National Theatre, the Tower of London, Greenwich Royal Observatory and the School of Rock musical.
International Foundation Programme UoL & LSE Conference
Last Wednesday was an early start for our IFP students attending a University of London and LSE conference. Although a long day, it was certainly very worthwhile and I hope has inspired some of our students to apply to some of the London colleges.
