Geography adventures in Malham 2013

Our annual visit to the Yorkshire Dales saw sunny weather again! 40 students and 5 staff saw the highs (of the limestone pavement on top of Malham Cove) and the lows (of Ingelborough cave system). The purpose was geography bonding right at the start of the GCSE course, and to see real examples of limestone scenery, the impact of tourism and how rural environments are changing. The group experienced intensive geography learning (studying till 10.30pm one night!) as well as the infamous team challenge and the ‘G’ factor competition.Mr MacGregor explains at the base of Gordale scar
