Year 12 Geography students visited Liverpool to support revision of their Changing Places topic for their upcoming end of year exams. As part of the course students learn about the rise, decline, inequality and regeneration of Liverpool, and this visit gave them the opportunity to see the places studied first-hand. Students visited the Albert Docks, including the Museum of Liverpool Life, Toxteth and China Town to understand Liverpool’s industrial, multi-cultural heritage and deprivation.
They explored Liverpool’s rich cultural heritage including St George’s Quarter and Penny Lane made famous by the ‘Fab Four’ (The Beatles). Finally, they investigated changing employment opportunities and attempts to regenerate Liverpool through; Gentrification of the Baltic Triangle and Rope Walk districts such as the Urban Splash Tea Factory, Liverpool’s new Knowledge Quarter, and the Liverpool One Shopping Centre redevelopment in the city centre.
