Urban explorers

15 November 2021

On Saturday 13th November the Aspire Geography Department took a group of Year 11 GCSE Geography students to Liverpool to investigate urban regeneration in the city.

Urban regeneration is the transforming of disused areas in inner cities to create opportunities for better housing and businesses. A primary purpose of urban regeneration is to restore economic viability to a given area by attracting external private and public investment.

The students had a great day taking in the Albert Dock, the River Mersey and the Liverpool One shopping centre, all fantastic examples of successful urban regeneration and a great help with their preparation for GCSE examinations next summer. And, as always, our students were a credit to the school, having a fantastic day in this vibrant city.
