Battlefields Trip

On 11th October, forty three pupils set off for the battlefields of Ypres and The Somme.  The pupils visited battles sites, interactive museums and gained expert accounts of the War from a local historian and guide.  Pupils were able to investigate the trenches, witness the scale of the battles and explore artefacts that have been uncovered over the years.  The highlight of the weekend was the thought provoking Last Post ceremony, at the Menin Gate, on Sunday evening.
The pupils were fantastic and a credit to the school.
We are already looking forward to next year!
