Year 10 geographers have this week been out in the field collecting data for their controlled assessment. Students sketched features, measured longshore drift and sand accumulation to gather the information required to complete their study of costal processes which include erosion, transportation and deposition.
This assessment, along with a previous research piece on energy, will count towards 25% of their final grade.
Head of Geography Sarah Harris commented: "As geographers at Withernsea High School, we are so lucky to have the perfect coastline for studying erosion. The stunning chalk cliffs at Flamborough and the rapidly eroding boulder clay cliffs at Hornsea and Mappleton were our study areas and we saw our students shine through the grey clouds and wind of the Holderness coast. They were all fully involved in the day and were a credit to the school."
