On a hot, sunny, day students visited the pretty village of Alfriston. Situated in the South Downs National Park, Alfriston is renowned for its historical buildings and beauty and is subsequently a popular destination for tourists. Students spent the day gathering data for their GCSE controlled assessment, they surveyed traffic, measured pollution and interviewed visitors and residents.
