Geography West Coast USA Trip

Here are some photos of the Geography Department’s recent trip to the West Coast of America from 11th-17th February. As you will see from the photos, The Students, Mr Kelly and Miss Kara all had an amazing time, saw some jaw-dropping sights, learned lots and sampled some truly American culture!

The trip covered over 1,600km and we travelled through three US states, visiting San Francisco, Death Valley, Las Vegas, The Grand Canyon and finally onto Phoenix. It was quite the Epic Road Trip!

We really did have a superb experience and we have some wonderful memories that will remain with us a long time!

Geography Trip 2015

Under the Golden Gate Bridge We have had a great few days so far in The USA enjoying the sights of San Francisco, including the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and Twin Peaks. We were all amazed at how stunning this city is and we want to stay longer!

Today we are travelling to Death Valley and the next step of our road trip will begin!

Newly revamped Blog Site for the Geography Department

The Geography Department have set up a new Blog, specifically for students in GCSE, AS and A2. The Blog has been designed to enable our students to make the most of their studies, to share links and to truly deepen their understanding of the contemporary case-studies, theories and concepts studied on their  courses. We will also share Geography Deppartment news, keeping both students and Parents/Carers informed.
