Year 10 GCSE Geographers (many with Starbucks in hand) assembled on Fishergate at 9:30am on Friday 30th June, ready to test if Preston follows the Burgess Model of Urban Land Use. This involved moving outwards from the city centre to the edge of Preston, to perform various tests to collect data and try to ascertain if the buildings, traffic and environment quality changed as hypothesised. The cohort showed all the resilience that we expected from a group of Geographers in the face of some pretty inclement weather in the afternoon. After the group took in the delights of Penwortham for their lunch, we convened in the Training Suite, for what was a very productive afternoon writing up our findings. The findings of the day will be tested on the Paper 3 exam next summer and this is always a real strength for Penwortham Girls’. The attitude and commitment shown by these students on the days suggest that next year will be no different.
