The sun is shining on our y12 Geographers who are currently on the Dorset Coast! Day 1 was spent exploring the succession of the dunes at Studland. They had their first PAGM (Personally Awesome Geographical Moment) at Old Harry Rocks and looked at how Swanage is protected from the elements of the coast. On day 2 they explored more of the Jurassic Coast, collected data for beach analysis of the world famous Chesil Beach and had more PAGMs at the UNESCO sites of Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door.
