Year 7 Geography Field Trip

Geography Field Trip

On 20th June the Geography department took year 7 out on the annual summer trip to Ashdown Forest, Arlington Reservoir and Firle Beacon.

This trip gave students the opportunity to  look in detail at the influence of the geology on the scenery and human activity at each location.  This ties in with the Local Area and Geology work we have been doing this year in year 7 geography.




Students thoroughly enjoyed the day, here’s what they had to say:

“My favourite location was Arlington Reservoir as the walk was very enjoyable. It was really hot so we bought ice creams to cool down. Overall it was a great trip and I learnt a lot from it” - Tom Dobney

“The school trip to Ashdown Forest, Arlington Reservoir and Firle Beacon was really fun, well organised and a great experience. I found it to be a valuable learning experience as we got to see and learn about the local geology in real life.” - Sam Coates

“The trip on Tuesday was a very enjoyable day for the whole year. We went to three different locations. May favorite location was Ashdown Forest as we ran down a steep hill and struggled trying to get back up. Overall it was a very fun and educational trip!" - Hannah Chevassut
