Lower V and St Pancras

Posted: 26th May 2022

GCSE Geographers investigate regeneration.

On Friday 20th May, Lower V GCSE Geography students visited the area around St Pancras, which has undergone a transformation in recent years.

The aim of the field visit was to study how sustainable the regeneration and rebranding that has taken place was environmentally, economically and socially.  Mr Chappory, Head of Geography, reported that the students found that economically and environmentally, the regeneration has been a great success.  However, socially, Lower V Geographers believe that the people of Somers Town have not really benefitted from that regeneration.

After planning and defining the aims of a geographical study, the field visit is an integral and essential part of the study, providing on-site evidence, which contributes to the resulting interpretation and analysis.
