Opportunities to run trips are limited at the moment, but our intrepid A Level Geography students ventured into London this term for their first data collection day.

The location was Stratford in East London, where the areas around Stratford New Town and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park were studied against a range of criteria.

A return visit at a later date will consider whether economic opportunities, facilities and environmental quality have improved since 2012 and investigate whether the benefits of regeneration extend beyond the Olympic Park itself.
