Geography Fieldtrip

Our recent fieldtrip with our year 10 Geographers allowed them to experience a different cultural mix to one they would be used to by growing up in Milton Keynes.

Our fieldtrip was designed to determine whether the Olympics had encouraged regeneration of the previously run-down Stratford area of London. The students were able to witness first had the mixing of cultures in London as well as the interaction between the new richer areas and the existing poorer areas that have yet to feel the benefit of regeneration.

 

This, albeit brief, first-hand view of the disparities within London we believe will be invaluable in not only for their Geography GCSE but will also help widen their current worldview of different cultures and urban living conditions.
