Year 10 were treated to a talk from local geotechnical expert Michael Buckley owner of bEk Enviro. The relevance of the pollution topic of the current GCSE curriculum was clear as Mr Buckley discussed local case studies that he has been involved in and helped the pupils understand what is required for site investigations.

It was a really good experience for the pupils to find out about another career path and how the impact of our society has lasting effects on our environment. From Japanese knotweed to the prevailing asbestos problems the environmental detective explained the hazards and what measures can be taken to control them. A very valuable talk and many thanks to Mr Buckley for visiting again this year.
