In late November a group of Upper Sixth Geographers were taken to London to visit the Royal Geographical Society (RGS) for an A2 study day. The students attended four workshops run by a variety of speakers, ranging from teachers to academics and professionals in the work place. The sessions directly related to the A2 course and the content was most valuable to the students. They covered globalisation, BRICS and MINTS, urbanisation and world cities, tectonic hazards, water conflict and security and to finish the day all attended a workshop on study skills, led by examiner and teacher Simon Oakes. The day was a huge success and the group had the chance to look around the extremely interesting Shackleton exhibition at the RGS.
