Geography Trips and Visits


Field work is an essential part of Geography. Every year the department runs a number of trip to underpin students learning and to encourage curiosity about the world around us.

Years 7 and 8

During these years we take students into Diss to conduct fieldwork on urban areas and to investigate perceptions of Europe. We also plan trips to the Crystal sustainable cities museum in London.


We plan 2 fieldtrips: one to Norwich to investigate changes to the inner city and the central Business district. The other trip of to the North Norfolk coast and student investigate the effect of coastal defenses on the area completing beach profiles and questionnaires.

A level 

We take students on several days out so they can conduct the 4 days of independent fieldwork which they are required to do during the course. The first 2 days help them build an understanding of a wide range of fieldwork techniques and the fieldwork write up process in preparation for their Independent Investigation. Students will undertake a further two days in which they collect data for their own investigation. This accounts for 20% of their final grade. 


The department also offers trips to places such as Italy every other year.
