Our brand-new Lower Sixth geographers set out for a day of fieldwork, travelling along our beautiful local Sussex coastline.
Pupils visited several notable locations, including Hope Gap, Seaford, Newhaven, and Cuckmere Haven, surveying the
unique landscape and discussing the coastal management strategies adopted here.
This area is defined by the stunning cliffs that mark the edge of the South Downs chalk formation, as well as ancient river valleys and flood plains, with a legacy of glaciation.
Residents are nestled in-between the marshlands, vegetated dunes and cliffs, and a mixture of defences are in
place to protect them, including sea walls, groynes, and breakwaters.
During the day, they were treated to a masterclass of local geological and historical knowledge from our very own Mr
Patton, and enjoyed ice creams on the beach, whilst being bathed in beautiful sunshine!
