Slapton Ley Geography Trip

Year 11 Geography students returned yesterday from a 5 day residential trip to Slapton Ley in Devon, where they undertook primary data collection for their GCSE Controlled Assessment. Their focus was on investigating flood risk along the Start Bay coastline, with students engaging in work such as Bi-polar risk assessments, public questionnaires and a cost-benefit analysis of existing coastal defences.

They also visited well known areas of coastal erosion such as Dawlish Warren on the Exe Estuary and Hallsands which, due to the removal of sand from its beach, was almost fully reclaimed by the sea in the early 20th Century.
