GCSE Rivers Day

Earth School Living World learning experiences


Join our expert Geography tutors on the banks of the River Thame at Hurst Water Meadow, a traditionally managed historic water meadow located at Dorchester-on-Thames.

Our investigation site sits on an island between the River Thame and Overy Mill Stream. Students will undertake a variety of quantitative and qualitative fieldwork techniques to better understand river processes, building on and consolidating previous knowledge.

The fieldwork day has been specially designed by our tutors to meet current GCSE specifications and can be tailored to meet your individual requirements.
