Sixth-form Geography students spend the day at New London Architecture (NLA) in the City of London

Year 12 A Level Geographers were fortunate to be able to join other Harris sixth-formers for a day at New London Architecture (NLA) in the City of London where they learnt about the priorities, challenges and solutions for London's urban planners in the past, today, and into the future. Speakers at the event included representatives of LendLease, the company behind the Elephant Park regeneration as well as urban planners for the City of London Corporation. The day kicked-off with a fascinating overview of development in London through the centuries by NLA Director Benjamin O'Connor who took the group on a tour of the NLA's stunning, and huge, 3D table models of London. The (thankfully sunny!) afternoon was spent trialling some human fieldwork techniques on Cheapside include random sampling, mood mapping and land use surveys.

For Beatriz, it was the stunning models of London that were the highlight of the day: "I enjoyed seeing the models demonstrating regeneration where you can see the timeline of the regeneration process across London through the colour coding of the different buildings." For Anissa and Isabella, it was learning about the history and transformation of the former Elephant and Castle that stuck in their minds: "I enjoyed getting to learn different reasons of why areas had to be regenerated over the years. For example, the original Elephant and Castle regeneration came about after destruction suffered during the World War II Blitz on London.

Being able to undertake independent fieldwork really helped Amira and Jasmine. Amira commented: "I enjoyed being independent and carrying out my own fieldwork- this helped me understand how to carry out my work for the NEA", which is the fieldwork investigation that the students will be carrying out during the summer. A really good day that will give these lucky students a head-start!
