Year 8 Geography Visit to Exmouth Beach

On Thursday 29th June, 56 Year 8 pupils visited Exmouth Beach with the Geography Department as part of their study of geomorphic processes and landforms.

Pupils gained valuable insight into the geology of the area and found out why the red sandstone cliffs at Exmouth have been designated as part of a World Heritage Site known as the ‘Jurassic Coastline’.

Year 8 observed evidence of coastal processes such as erosion in action and added to their geographical skills by collecting a variety of data. Finally, they looked at some of the issues that are affecting the beach and methods of managing them including coastal protection strategies before ending the trip with an ice cream!

The Geography Department would like to thank Mr Griffin, Mr Phillips and Mr Harkin who all assisted with the trip.
