7th March 2014

The 5th March marked the start of a trip that took four Geography AS classes down to the South Coast. After getting up (too) early, we began the long journey, stopping along the way to investigate the erosional processes found at Chesil Beach, Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove. We were very lucky to be treated to warm, clear skies: considering the weather that the coast had suffered from in the weeks previous. Up bright and early again on day two, we explored the sand dune development and conservation of Studland Beach and visited the millionaire mansions of Poole Harbour.
Too quickly the trip was over. It was Friday and after a morning studying Hengistbury Head, it was time to go home. Surprisingly for some, not very much 'colouring in' occurred on the trip and the action packed, three day crash-course to the coasts meant there were a lot of sleeping beauties on the bus journey back to DCGS.
The trip was planned perfectly to make it both enjoyable and extremely useful. On behalf of all of the boys, I'd like to thank everyone that was involved in making the trip such a huge success.
