Ainsdale Dunes Geography field trip
On Monday, 21st March, the year 12 and 13 Geographers went on a field trip to Ainsdale dunes as part of their A level course. This involved surveying the shape of the dunes and collecting information about the vegetation growing there to improve their understanding of coastal ecosystems. The group were efficient and good humoured in their endeavours and although the day began with wet weather, by lunchtime we were basking in early spring sunshine which made the tasks a lot more pleasant. Some useful data was collected for the skills paper of their A level and is now being processed and written up in detail. Despite some difficulties in climbing the dunes and Mrs Collier nearly falling off one into a patch of prickly Sea Buckthorn, everyone survived unscathed and had a good day.
Thanks to the students for such an excellent day’s fieldwork and to Mr Ball for accompanying us.
"Our two daughters have had the best start in life thanks to the caring, enthusiastic and hardworking staff of Archbishop Blanch School. Choosing the right secondary school for one's children is such a difficult task, but we could feel the special ethos of ABS on our first visit. You inspire your pupils to achieve the academic heights of which they are capable in a happy, safe and vibrant environment."
