A group of Upper Sixth Geography pupils visited Kendal for field trips last weekend. The Geographers enjoyed unusually splendid weather when they visited Kendal on two consecutive Saturdays to investigate variations in environmental quality.
The groups undertook a variety of surveys in transects to find out whether the quality improved towards the edge of town, drawing comparisons with urban models, and also assessed whether the north was better than the south.
Geography teacher Helen Rowland said: “The pace was characteristically fast and the pupils wasted no time assessing the buildings, greenery and street-scapes, measuring noise levels, undertaking questionnaires and looking up house prices.
There were also opportunities to gain insights into the aftermath of the recent floods and the devastation which continues to affect local residents.”
