SCHOOL pupils have missed out on dozens of school trips due to the pandemic.

But this has not stopped those at Kings' from completing their GCSE Geography Rivers Fieldwork experience.

Six months after having to postpone the trip due to lockdown, the pupils went off site and visited Highland Water River in the New Forest to collect data.

A spokesperson told the Chronicle: "An unfortunate side-effect of the pandemic has been the cancellation of all trips and outings, something the pupils and staff at Kings’ School have always enjoyed.

"But over one hundred Kings’ School pupils have finally completed their GCSE Geography Rivers Fieldwork experience.

"They collected data and thoroughly enjoyed being outdoors.

"Carefully following Covid-19 guidelines, not only was this the first offsite educational visit by Kings’ since pupils returned to school, but one of the first in the country too."
