Last week saw the year 12 biologists experiencing first hand the processes of ecology in the field. The annual biology field trip to Dorset this year was graced with excellent weather and a committed group of students.
During the three days and 25 hours of teaching time, students got to carry out field work in two sites with ‘National Importance’ – Studland and Kimmeridge, and complete a strand of their coursework ready for their A2. Each evening was spent processing and analysing the data in a way that they would experience if they continued to study biology at University.
The trip was a great success with students gaining a real insight into the processes and problems of managing these fragile ecosystems. The day at Kimmeridge was topped by meeting a photogenic adder basking in the morning sun.
