July 7th / Year 10 Geographers took part in a fantastic trip to Dorset to study this beautiful coastline and to enjoy activities at the PGL centre at Osmington Bay. The first day was sadly overcast but we were able to learn about coastal landforms, such as Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door arch. The girls then successfully completed a “hike” over to Durdle Door.
On the second day, the sun came out and we visited Lyme Regis to study the various coastal management measures that are in place to protect this important tourist destination from erosion. We discussed the cost – benefits involved. Is it worth spending £19 million on a brand new sea wall to protect houses and businesses or should we just let the sea win?
Back at the PGL centre, the girls enjoyed various fun and team building activities, such as “Jacob’s Ladder”, orienteering, robot wars and “Giant Swing” (with the best views in the country!).
