    Y12 Sussex Trip

    In the last week of the Spring term, 38 Y12 geographers travelled to East Sussex to reinforce their understanding of coastal processes and management. 

    Students attended a lecture at Sussex University which described how, using high resolution drone photography, they have built up astonishingly detailed 3D models of the local cliffs which allow them to make improved predictions of the scale and rate of cliff collapse. 

    Later, in bright sunshine, we enjoyed the beautiful meanders and beach at Cuckmere, seeing how the Environment Agency's recent decision to stop defending this stretch of coastline is affecting the vegetation and geomorphology of the area.
