Britain At Low Tide

History/Geography Trip Pett Level Beach, Hastings

The following programme was aired at 8pm on Saturday 17th February on Channel 4:


On the 26th May 2017 10 Ratton students were offeredan amazing opportunity to appear in a Channel 4 programme called Britain at Low Tide, which explores archaeology along the British coastline.


Lara and Stephanie, two Archaeologists from CitiZan (the Coastal and Intertidal Zone Archaeological Network), the presenter Tori, and our students were filmed by crew from Tern Production. In two teams they explored the remains of a submerged forest which is approximately 6, 000 years old and is still visible on the shore at low tide for people to explore today. Students chatted on camera with Lara and Stephanie, and the presenter Tori and asked questions about what they found.


Pett Level Beach is a wonderful site to visit if you are keen to also find fossils and a want to see dinosaur footprints!


The students were a real credit to Ratton School and we look forward to spotting them on television in November.

Well done to the following students: Rheya Ansell, Taegan Byroo, Ollie Dagostar, Ella Harris, Gini Harvey, Bukhosi Msipha, Mollie Simpson, Tyriece Whiteoak, Joe Whitmore and Lara Vaney.
