Form 6 Trip to Swanage

The annual Form 6 field study trip to Swanage was a great success, with glorious sunshine enhancing the experience. Mrs Peterman commented, “The girls discovered about the geology of the Jurassic Coast and how millions of years ago the different layers of rock were created and laid down only to be rearranged on their side by a massive earthquake.  They also investigated the dune system at Studland Bay and how over time the transportation by wind, sea and birds had led to this environment.  We discovered by the end of Wednesday that we had in fact walked a total of eight miles that day, but we still had enough energy to find out about the mysterious smugglers and their exciting stories in a talk in the underground quarry that evening.  Spectacular views of Lulworth Cove, Stairhole and Durdle Door were enjoyed on the last day with each girl feeling a sense of achievement as they reached the top of the hill.  Riddles and jokes were shared making us laugh and a happy time was had by all.”
