Year 11 geographers went to Walton-on-the-Naze on Thursday 7th and Friday 8th September. We were collecting data on our hypothesis ‘Hard engineering is effectively controlling longshore drift’.

The group visited the managed and unmanaged sections of the beach to compare the two sites. Students carried out a groyne profile and two field sketches. Students worked incredibly hard despite the heat.

Back in the classroom they will present their results and either prove or disprove their hypothesis. Well done Year 11 – a fantastic start to the year!
