Geography in York

Geographers from our Lower Sixth Form headed out into York to undertake a detailed analysis of our city’s morphing landscape.

Exploring urban geography, pupils honed their fieldwork skills by surveying the changing landscape of our city. As part of their analysis, pupils dated the varying styles of architecture, measured noise levels and talked with local residents. With a history that goes back almost 2,000 years, York has seen a great deal of change throughout its lifetime making it the perfect setting for a geography field trip.

York was named as the best place to live by The Sunday Times in 2018 and is regarded as one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. With St Peter’s is at the heart of this inspiring city our pupils have access to a range of cultural opportunities and stunning green spaces, all in a place they call home.

Our Sixth Form geographers now prepare themselves for the field trip to the Isle of Arran later this term, where they will put their fieldwork skills to the test.
