School Field Trips

A recent addition to the services offered by South Wales GeoTours is bespoke leadership for Earth Science (GCSE and A-Level) courses with schools and sixth form colleges.

Teachers are required to make initial contact via the Contact form during which time the objectives of the schools field trip can be discussed and the appropriate involvement of South Wales GeoTours can be defined. The material covered during the excursion will be tailored to the curriculum of the students.

In much the same way as with the guidance of small parties, the Leader will guide the school party to the localities and make appropriate presentations on the geology to be observed. This will involve the Plate Tectonic setting at the time of formation of the rock units, processes in deposition of the sediment and subsequent structuration of the rock and, the lifeforms present when the rocks were being deposited.
