Pupils from the Iceni Academy, Methwold, left the classroom behind when a seaside resort became their place of study for the day.
Twenty year 11 students, who are all studying GCSE Geography, spent time on the North Norfolk coast at the Holkham National Nature Reserve.
The teenagers studied the sand dune system which forms part of the reserve.
Pupils Alfie Ayres said he got a lot from the trip.
He said: “You learn a lot of things in the classroom at school but to get out and apply what you’ve learnt really helps your understanding”.

In order to meet the requirements of the subject specification, the pupils also spent time surveying the impact of tourism across the reserve and asked questions to visitors.
Geography teacher James Boyd said: “Students always get a lot out of a field trip and the chance to look at the links between different aspects of Geography.”
