WWI Battlefields Trip Update

Both coaches have had an excellent day exploring sites connected to the Battle of the Somme. We have heard personal stories which make us focus on the individual, but also visited vast memorials to try to give a sense of the scale of loss suffered across the war. Places we have visited today include… Lochnagar crater, the Devonshire’s cemetery, Delville Wood, Mametz Wood and Beaumont-Hamal battle site and memorial. We continue to be so impressed with the respect, behaviour and attitude our students are showing.
We are now looking forward to a good meal and an evening to relax before another full day tomorrow!
