Geography: Lower Sixth Students Complete Rivers Fieldwork


Fifteen of Bede’s Lower Sixth Geography students recently went on a residential Rivers Investigation fieldwork trip to Juniper Hall in Dorking as part of their A Level course. 

The endeavour provided an excellent opportunity for the students to experience fieldwork first-hand and to carry out their own river investigation while also enjoying some time bonding and working as a team during their stay.


The weather conditions were perfect across the three days, with the students enjoying splashing around in the rivers whilst collecting data and measurements for their projects.

These measurements included river depth, width and current strength and will inform the students’ research projects into their chosen topics, such as erosion, pollution and flooding.


Excellent team work and a positive, enthusiastic spirit meant that the students gained a great deal from their fieldwork, including experience of project management, accurate collection of data and how to work well in teams.

Mrs Tipping and I really enjoyed spending time with the students, who were a credit to the school and a pleasure to spend a few days with, and we are optimistic that the outcomes from all the students’ efforts will be truly top notch.
