Geography – Castleton Fieldtrip

As part of their Controlled Assessment, Year 11 Geography students visited the honeypot site of Castleton in the Peak District.  During this time they conducted fieldwork which is used in class to form 25% of their GCSE grade.

Half of the students went on Thursday 15th September when it was clear blue skies and a stunning 25⁰C, unfortunately the other half weren’t treated to such nice weather on the Friday but were lucky enough that the rain stayed away.
