Exceptional field trip for the Lower Sixth Biology students

Posted on July 12, 2017


The Lower 6 Biology students enjoyed a stunning four days at the Slapton Ley Field Centre, near Kingsbridge over the weekend beginning Friday 30 June. Very fortunately, the trip coincided with some lovely weather so the girls could enjoy the sunshine whilst working hard on the ecology section of Topic 5 – ‘On the Wild Side’. The practical work included freshwater and rocky shore studies, as well as focusing on the globally important vegetated shingle ridge. As ever, this was an excellent trip and very much a hands-on experience to bring their subject to life away from the classroom.
