As part of their Key Stage 4 learning, Year 9 History students have the opportunity visit the battlefields of World War One in Belgium and France. This trip gives students the opportunity to visit historical sites such as:
- Ypres – Flanders Field Museum
- The last post ceremony at the Menin Gate
- Somme Battlefields Guided Tour – Thiepval, Beaumont Hamel, Vimy Ridge & Lochnager Crater
- Tyne Cot Cemetery
- Langemarck German Cemetery
This trip is particularly poignant for students and helps bring their classroom studies to life and offers them a wealth of cultural, social and educations experiences.
