A CHANGE of scenery helped re-focus brains as these geography students headed for a residential revision trip.

A group of 34 students from St George’s School travelled to the Lake District as their teachers arranged some intensive study sessions.

The pupils stayed in Barrow House, an independent youth hostel that boasts a stunning setting in the Borrowdale Valley in the north lakes.

And the trip has always proved popular with students according to assistant headteacher of the Marton school Graham Hulme.

He said: “This is the eighth consecutive year we have organised this event.

“Not only do the students work closely with staff on carefully-planned revision sessions indoors, we also have a day of revision in the open air.

“This helps because they are actually seeing and talking about the topics that will feature in the upcoming examination”.

There was plenty of time for fun as well as work for the students.

Chris Ibbotson, assistant headteacher added: “We are really pleased our geography students showed their commitment to learning with the residential.

“Getting to see the scenery for themselves and enjoy the sound and atmosphere makes a big difference.”
