During January Year 12 and 13 Geography students visited the city of Liverpool to carry out fieldwork. They studied the rejuvenation in the city, looking at various schemes in Anfield and Toxteth; from selling homes for £1, to funding through council schemes.
A study of the town centre re-development, to encourage tourism, was carried out. This was started when Liverpool became the city of culture. Students looked at Formby Sands, identifying the stages of succession from marram grass to the climatic climax of oak woodland in this area of SSI. The trip was enjoyed by all and the students were a credit to the school.
