Over half term, Y12 English Literature students (Alex Hollingworth, Jodie McDonald, Vickie Fell, Laura Foster) visited Belgium and France as part of a Tour of the Western Front with Miss Saunders and students and staff from Wales High School.
We visited Ypres, Passcendaele, Thiepval and Vimy Ridge memorials, laid a wreath at the Menin Gate Last Post ceremony, stood in No Man’s Land on the Somme and numerous trenches and visited Isaac Rosenberg and Private Peaceful’s graves. The aim of the trip was to help students contextualise the poetry and wider reading they are studying as part of their AS English Literature studies, with thanks to our brilliant tour guides Dr David Nunn and Dr Barry Matthews.
