WW1 Battlefields Trip

The Head of History, Mr Palmer took two lucky Year 9's on the First World War Centenary Battlefields Tour Programme. The tour included visits to various World War One cemeteries in Belgium and Northern France, including the famous Tyne Cot Cemetery, as well as the Somme Battlefields, the Ceremony of the Last Post at the Menin Gate and a performance of Journey's End in the centre of Ypres. The whole trip was not just hugely enjoyable but also a hugely beneficial learning experience and an invaluable reminder of the horrors of the First World War and the need for remembrance, to mark 100 years since the armistice to end The First World War was signed.
