Pupils study great outdoors

PUPILS from a county school headed to the Yorkshire Dales to complete geography fieldwork.

Last week, 36 students from the Lower Sixth Form at Oundle School spent three days at Malham Tarn Field Studies Centre.

They collected and analysed data from a river and a quarry and explored the characteristics of different settlements in the area.

Lou Banerjee, the school’s head of geography, said: “All three days involved considerable teamwork in collecting the data along with careful analysis to be able to draw out conclusions from it.

“As well as being an excellent opportunity to see some of the classroom theory in a real-life context, this work will go towards two of their four A-Level exams.

“It was a vital part of their studies.”
