How to find us

Snowdonia expedition

This year’s geography trip to Snowdonia brought two days of highly engaging fieldwork. Encouraged by the beautiful weather and scenery, we enthusiastically set off to investigate how the Afon Conwy’s discharge changed downstream, using a variety of new and exciting equipment. Back at the centre, evening lessons introduced us to new concepts such as Strahler’s Stream order that we are now applying to our data back in lessons at school.

On the Saturday, we headed to Cwm Idwal to gain an insight into the effects of tourism in the area. After having a talk with Buck the farmer (the highlight of the trip!), we headed back for a delicious supper, an enjoyable evening with friends – including ping pong, snooker and football – before returning home early the following morning, tired but happy.
