Budehaven GCSE geographers in trip to Naples

Last half term, 47 Year 11 students from Budehaven participated in an exciting opportunity to visit Naples, Italy as part of the GCSE Geography course. This was a first for Budehaven geographers.

The trip was aimed at enhancing students understanding of tectonic hazards, urban issues and challenges, coasts and urban fieldwork; all components of the AQA Geography GCSE course.

While on the trip students completed educational activities including a boat tour of Capri Island where they studied coastal features, undertaking an urban study of Sorrento, as well as a walk up to
the crater of Mount Vesuvius, a once in a lifetime experience despite the mist!

Finally, students spent an afternoon learning about the ruins of Pompeii that were buried when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79AD.

The students were a credit to the school, they had a fantastic time and have enhanced their understanding of the geography of the world around us.
