Days in the field for A-level Geographers and Geologists

On Thursday 15th and Friday 16th November the Year 12 Geography and Year 13 Geology groups travelled visited various locations on the Gower in order to collect data for their A-level coursework investigations.

The Year 12 (AS) Geography students collected data related to the glacial sediments (deposited during the last ice age) at Rhossili and Three Cliffs Bay for their physical investigation. On the second day the group investigated rural-urban change in the north of the Gower by visiting a number of villages along the coast.

The Year 13 (A2) Geology students travelled to a number of locations along the south Gower coast. This allowed them to investigate how the rocks and structures found there have been affected by major tectonic events in the past.

Both visits were very successful as the students were able to collect a range of observations and data which will allow them to complete their investigations. It is hoped that all of the pupils will have gained valuable experience and skills from the visits allowing them to be successful in their A-level studies.
