A Level Geography students take a trip to Malham

Barnsley Sixth Form College A Level Geography students took a trip to Malham in the Yorkshire Dales as part of their studies.

On the three-day residential trip the 39 students took part in a variety of activities including walking from Malham Village to Gordale Scar to see a limestone landform and waterfall and working at Cowside Beck river collecting data, such as speed, width and depth. They stayed at the field studies centre next to Malham Tarn, one of the highest lakes in England.

Geography teacher James Davies said: “The students thoroughly enjoyed the trip and it was a great chance for them to put into practice some of the things they have been learning in class. Field trips are a fantastic part of the A Level curriculum which help students to understand the richness of their subject.”
