A-level and IB Geography group enhance learning at Lake District

A-level and International Baccalaureate Geography candidates got the chance to enhance their learning thanks to a special trip.

The Rydal Penrhos contingent travelled to the Lake District prior to the summer break to take part in a series of different activities based around their coursework on the chosen subject.

Lucy Carnall, Jonas Lucas-Nuelle, Laura O’Kelly, Tasmin Iacobellis, Zac Blomeley, Joe Gardener, Alexia Radu and Venus Kwong attended the trip, and also present was former pupil and Conwy Young Sportswoman of the Year Ellie Scarff, who is continuing with her studies despite being part of the prestigious Patrick Mouratoglou Tennis Academy in the South of France.

During their stay in the region, the group worked incredibly well as a unit under the leadership of department head Fleur Jones, Sixth Form head Peter Lavery and Director of Studies Sally Harding, making a “real effort” to produce some well-presented material and do some “blue sky” thinking.

They collected data from sites such as the picturesque Sellafield sand dunes and Honey-pot town of Keswick, which will be correlated at the start of the academic year in September and used as part of their ongoing work in the lead-up to their final projects.

Mr Lavery, said: “Each pupil involved on the trip showed a tremendous amount of dedication towards getting the most out of another fantastic opportunity to enhance their respective work, and the teamwork shown throughout shows just how much they are developing as a group.

“This was fantastic to see and hopefully their data will aid their studies considerably when they return for their final year of life at Rydal Penrhos following their well-deserved summer break.”
