On Tuesday 11th July and Wednesday 12th July our Year 10 and 12 Geography students visited different sites along The River Chess to explore the changing characteristics of the river and different areas of St Alban’s Centre to study changing land use. Despite the rain on Tuesday the student’s all did a fantastic job of collecting data using a range of methods that they will be tested on in their Geography GCSE next summer.
After school on Tuesday 27th June the Geography Department hosted the Year 7 and 8 World Wise Week Geography quiz where over 30 students battled it out to become St Joan of Arc Geography champions! A huge congratulations to the winning teams:

From 21st-24th February Y8 students went on a History trip to Windsor Castle. This was an enjoyable and educational day for everyone. The day included going round the State Apartments, a tour of the Chapel and a session from the educational team. Some students were invited to dress up as the wives of Henry VIII and try on some costumes. On two of the days the students saw the changing of the guard and on every day there was a lot of enthusiasm for pictures with the guards! The Queen was in the Castle on the Friday, but sadly she was not seen by the students.
