Last week our College One Geographers, along with their peers from The Mount School, went to the FCS Drapers Field Centre in north Wales for their fieldwork. The students braved all weathers – from extreme wind, torrential rain, enough sun to necessitate suntan cream for a couple for hours – to biting cold and a full snow covering all in 5 days. Their studies covered aspects of the water and carbon cycles, the study of place and of course the effects of glaciation on the landscape.

An unforgettable bare foot bog walk was perhaps the highlight for some and this was a great example of students from Quaker schools working collaboratively. Well done to all those involved.
