Geography field trip looks at urban life

Around 50 Year 11 students explored Bristol on a crisp cold day in November.

The GCSE Geography Urban field trip helped them investigate the impacts of urban change at the Harbourside and Temple Quarter.

Mr Hurran said: “The students were awesome. We experienced gentrification in the form of expensive crisps, discussed Grenfell Tower, saw brand new buildings on brownfield sites and were shocked by the amount of homelessness we encountered.

“It was an extremely valuable day of learning.”
