Sustainable Development – East Village – An environmentally friendly urban development 

On Tuesday 7th February, Year 7 embarked on an urban fieldtrip to Stratford, East London where they investigated the regeneration of the Lea Valley, now the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and studied a large-scale sustainable housing development, East Village.  During the trip, the boys had many opportunities to develop their geographical skills, which included reading and following maps and plans, completing sustainability assessments and canvassing the views of local people using questionnaires.

It was wonderful to be in an “outside classroom” and the whole experience enhanced the boys’ understanding of many relevant and current environmental issues.
