Gina Murphy / Categories: News

On Tuesday, 13th and Wednesday, 14th September, fifty five Geographers visited the River Bollin, near Macclesfield, in order to investigate the river channel and its characteristics as part of their Controlled Assessment in the subject, a compulsory element of the GCSE course accounting for 25% of the final marks

Working collaboratively in small groups under the supervision of staff but also undertaking individual, independent tasks , students embarked on measuring river channel width and depth,bed load size and shape and river velocity.

All the students were exceptionally well behaved and enthusiastic throughout the two days. Their fieldwork was highly successful,completing the tasks efficiently and effectively, impressing staff and members of the public who witnessed their efforts alike with their energy, commitment and evident enjoyment. They certainly made a big splash!!
