Spring Term 2017

A Level Geography Fieldtrip to London

The Geography Department has recently returned from an invigorating and extremely useful fieldtrip to London to study the Queen Elizabeth’s Olympic Park and the Dockland sites as examples of urban regeneration in the context of London as a World City. The A-Level students also focussed on gaining a greater understanding of the issues related to a multicultural society, focusing on housing, culture and wealth of specific areas.

The group visited The Crystal, an exhibition highlighting the future of sustainable cities which had relevance to all the human topics that they have studied so far at A Level. They travelled over the Thames to the O2 arena, via the Emirates Cable Car, then on to the Isle of Dogs where they explored the financial centre of London, around Canary Wharf, as well as Cubitt town, the City Farm and the Docklands Museum. They also managed to speak to some Londoners on the way and ascertain their views on the impacts of regeneration in the area. The group were led around Tower Hamlets in the evening towards Brick Lane where they experienced multiculturalism first hand through observation and an excellent Punjabi meal.
