At the beginning of February, we once again had the honour of taking some of our Year 9 students to the Ypres area of Belgium and the Somme in France. This trip runs every year and is an opportunity to make our Year 9 WW1 History curriculum come alive. We visited various places of historical significance, memorials, cemeteries, museums and trench systems. We also took part in the Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate, where we laid a bespoke wreath made by the students. As usual, this was a moving and emotional experience for all.
This year’s group were absolutely excellent and demonstrated a high level of engagement, reflection and empathy. We have always managed to find students’ relatives names on the Menin Gate, but this year we were also able to visit the actual grave of a
student’s Great Great Grandfather.
