In December our year 13 Geography classes went on a trip to Manchester as part of our A-Level course. During the trip we went on a guided tour of the city, which helped us to compile our own case study on the history of the city and how it grew as cottonoppolis and was the centre of much of the world’s trade and then the subsequent decline of the city. We also looked at how the 1997 IRA bomb has in a strange way helped transform the city with loads of new buildings and regeneration. On the second day we visited a conference set up by our exam board. This was very helpful as they ran lots of revision workshops on modules we have been studying. Overall the trip was very successful in enhancing our knowledge in a fun and interactive way. And Emily had the fish sweats! I recommend the trip enormously to our year 12 peers.
