Year 13 – Home study
Final exams are getting closer for Year 13 and Mr Giles is happy for Year 13 students to have home study on Wednesday and Friday afternoons from now on, with parental approval. Please can you email to confirm your approval if you wish your son or daughter to have home study.

Today we welcomed Bethany and Andy from the National Citizen Service in the Year 12 assembly to give the students one last opportunity to embark on the NCS Summer project, giving exhilarating challenges, the ability for students to make their mark and build key skills for work and life.  NCS have an 18 day scheme in the Summer that is worth £1500 for our students at a cost of £50! Not only will it boost students’ confidence and give them new experiences by living together with people they have never met before, it also gives them the chance to give back something to the local community and something which will impress in any work, apprenticeship or university interview.
Year 12 Geography field trip to Nettlecombe Court by James Hirst Year 12
For our A Level NEA (non-examined assessment), we went to Nettlecombe Court in Somerset. On the first day we arrived at the Field Studies Centre and quickly got to work investigating how we understand place. For our first evening lesson we learnt about the different ways to present the data we would later collect for our NEAs, as well as working in pairs to show the way to present both human and physical data. This helped us to think of the initial hypotheses that our NEAs would be based on.
On the second day, we learned what the methods were for collecting the data and later put this into practice and visited Porlock Bay. Here, we practiced possible techniques we would be using when collecting our data, such as beach profiles and how to measure sediment size and shape. We also had the opportunity to do a practice field sketch of the area, making sure we had detailed annotations.
The next day we started our data collection in Minehead based on our individual NEA focuses. This involved us working as a group to collect the data which helped us to answer the hypotheses we made prior to visiting the coastline. This was done without teacher assistance which meant we had to work efficiently in order to collect as much data as we could within the time we had. This proved to be challenging and meant we had to work through a couple of our planned breaks. Despite the time constraints we finished collecting our data and headed back to the classroom, where we wrote up about how we collected the data.
For the fourth and final day we started to convert our data into useful statistics. This turned out to be difficult as it was very early for all of us to do the hard maths. However, we got the hang of it and finished in good time. Overall, the trip was an enjoyable experience which will prove to be very useful towards our NEA.
