Take them to the River

Year 8 visited the Fieldwork Centre in Amersham recently to complete the practical element of their Common Entrance coursework for Geography.  They looked at a variety of techniques including collecting data on river velocity, flow rates, float rate and river discharge which will then be used to write a 1000-word project.  This accounts for 20% of their overall exam mark.

David Sanchez, commented "The experience was great and I am very glad that we got the chance to study the River Chess in the detail that we could.  We got some very good results and it will certainly help us with our exams throughout the year!"


Mr. Clark, Head of Geography agreed and went on to say that, "The boys and girls worked really well together throughout the day, and despite having wellies full of water and extremely cold feet at the end of it all, they all had a very successful and interesting day."
