 CELL - Changing Environments Landscape Laboratory

Students from two North Pennines schools have been working alongside field scientists in the North Pennines AONB.   

Students from Samuel King's School, Alston and William Howard, Brampton have spent a year out in the field working with scientists collecting data to feed in to habitat conservation programmes. The schools programme is led by the North Pennines AONB Partnership working with the RSPB, Tyne Rivers Trust, Natural England, English Heritage, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology at Lancaster and local landowners and businesses.

The staff and students have really valued the opportunity to be part of live field science and to contribute towards the conservation of this protected landscape. The field work has been developed to link to their A level and GCSE courses.

Please click on the links below to the schools web pages to find how their first year progressed.
