History WWI Battlefields Trip

40 Year 11 students attended a trip to the WWI battlefields of the Somme and the Ypres Salient. This was a trip to learn, reflect and commemorate those who died in The Great War. They visited many sites, memorials and museums including the Tyne Cot Cemetery, the In Flanders Field Museum and the Lochnagar Crater. They also attended the Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate. Some students were able to find memorials to deceased relatives and pay their respects. Joe Hebden, Carla Orsi and Katy Tulloch were chosen to lay a wreath at the Menin Gate on behalf of the College.
