On Wednesday the 29th of June, the Geography department took 27 year 8 pupils on a Field trip to Wales. The first stop was the Llandudno coast, where pupils investigated the variety and effectiveness of coastal defences in a tourist area. The second day of the trip involved an ascent of Mount Snowdon, the highest peak in England & Wales with an elevation of 1065 metres. After a cup of tea at the summit the Geographers made their way back down and on to Caernarfon to investigate the land-use and to decide the function of the town. After packing up their rucksacks pupils made their final stop on day 3 at the well-known inland tourist resort of Betws-y-Coed to look at the positive and negative impacts of tourism on the area. A great time was had by all!
