Geography Fieldwork in Brampton

Year 7 Geographers were developing their fieldwork skills and learning outside of the classroom last week during their geography lessons; the students headed into the centre of Brampton to collect data relating to ‘human geography’.

The new GCSE geography specification has a greater focus on fieldwork skills, and the methodology, evaluation, analysis and conclusions of fieldwork are examined at the end of the course. As a result, we are introducing fieldwork early so that students can acquire the necessary skills and are better equipped to tackle geography at GCSE.
