Secondary Fieldwork - Leeson House

Fieldwork for Common Entrance Exam Projects

Leeson House offers a range of fieldwork opportunities for the Geography option of the Common Entrance Exam.

All of our CE study units include a variety of fieldwork and mapping skills and follow the lines of a standard geographical enquiry. We are also able to provide guidance for secondary data sources including use of GIS where appropriate. The study units are closely linked to the thematic titles.

Rivers and Coasts

A variety of activities/topics could include carrying out the following: a study of downstream changes along the River Piddle or West Corfe River; comparison and contrast two sections of a beach at Durdle Door; a study of the Swanage Flood Alleviation Scheme and why Swanage is prone to flash flooding; discuss how the impact of visitors is managed within Studland Heath National Nature Reserve.

Transport and industry

Study the advantages and disadvantages of the various transport links in the Isle of Purbeck and the effect on tourism at places such as Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door.

Weather and Climate

Collect data from our onsite flood plots and record tree interception rates. Explore whether this data can be compared to data obtained out in the field.
