Year 12 & 13 Geographers Enjoy Snowdonia When it Lived Up to its Name!

26 of our A Level geographers enjoyed stunning rare weather conditions to investigate how a small upland river changes downstream.  For the second year, we visited the Afon Nant Peris; a small upland river which flows in the glaciated valley of the Llanberis Pass.  The day is delivered in conjunction with the Field Studies Council and provides a high quality field work experience for our Key Stage Five students.

This year, we were particularly lucky with the snowy, sunny and slightly chilly conditions we encountered.  It will forever be remembered by students as the time Snowdonia really lived up to its name!  It made the landscape look stunning, almost like the European Alps and provided a real 'wow' factor to enhance the geography of the area.  Our students were once again a pleasure to take on the visit and Mr McGuinness, Mr Gallagher, Miss Watson and Miss Atkinson are all very proud of the resilience and commitment from our amazing geographers!  Very well done team!

The conditions were a little chilly, but provided the dressing for a truly epic geographical landscape on a day that the students will always remember.
