Over the past two weeks, Barry Comprehensive School’s AS and GCSE Geology groups have completed their field visits in preparation for their coursework. The AS group spent two days in the Brecon Beacons studying the geology of the Ystradfellte valley. They visited the Porth yr Ogof cave system and a number of spectacular waterfalls, looking into the variety of past environments in the area.
The GCSE group travelled to Pembrokeshire and studied the varied geology of the west coast. This included ancient lava flows on Marloes beach and old mine workings at Broadhaven and Solva.
Both visits were a real success with a great deal of valuable work being completed. The worst of the weather was just about avoided. Mr. Prickett would like to thank all of the students who took part in the trips for their exemplary behaviour and for representing the school well.
