Y10 Geography Field Trip to Swanage

On Wednesday 14 June, Year 10 geographers ventured to Swanage (in 26 degrees!) to collect fieldwork data; this is an essential skill required for GCSE. On beaches busy with tourists and sunseekers, the girls quickly settled to the task required, this involved measuring the groynes and beach profiling to assess the direction of life longshore drift. A short drive further down the coast took us to Lulworth Cove, where they experienced a different type of coast. However testing here was mainly of ice cream flavours, cookies and cream and chocolate fudge brownie proving the most popular!

Visitors to St Gabriel's quickly recognise that this is no ordinary school. Parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils. We offer girls the opportunity for a seamless journey from Nursery through to Sixth Form, with our boys leaving us at the age of 11 for their senior schools.
