Trip to Lyme Regis
On Tuesday 9th May, Year 10 Geographers travelled down to Lyme Regis on the Jurassic Coast to investigate the multi-million pound sea defences.
The students were investigating if the defences have been successful in slowing coastal processes and protecting the town of Lyme Regis from slipping into the sea without hindering tourism which is crucial to the local economy. Students did an excellent job in collecting data to help investigate this which included measuring and comparing the morphology of the beach at various sites, analysing each of the six defences in depth and conducting a questionnaire with locals, tourists and shop owners.
A very successful day filled with Geography for the students to absorb as well as the occasional ice-cream. Well done to all students involved.
