OUR Year 13 Geography students were in their element when they visited East London as part of their A Level course.

Teacher of Geography at King’s Ely Senior, Claire Kyndt, said: “The sun shone brightly as we journeyed through the cultural and historical geographies that this area of London has to offer – from imagining the slum dwellings of Victorian London to the silk and textile trade of the early Huguenots migrants.

“Students examined the role of gentrification on the changing urban landscape with a visit to Spitalfields Market and the highlight of the day was a walk along Brick Lane, where the group experienced Bengali culture first-hand with a curry lunch.

“It was wonderful to get back out in the field after so long and the department would like to thank the students for their engagement, enthusiasm and for being such brilliant company.”
