History London Trip

History London Trip

This week 52 of our Year 10 and 11 GCSE History students enjoyed an exciting and action packed overnight visit to London.

Their first stop on this great adventure: the London Dungeons! Described by Jack P as "terrifying but fantastic" as actors recreated gruesome historical events such as the Jack the Ripper Murders and The Great Fire of London.

The London Eye was the highlight of the trip for some, giving our students opportunity to enjoy breath taking views of the London skyline and major city landmarks, before heading down to visit Downing Street and enjoy a delicious meal at the Jungle Cave Restaurant.

With no time to waste, the students were up and out early the next morning to visit the Imperial War Museum, where they were given the chance to discover, explore and learn in a way that the classroom doesn't always reach. Buckingham Palace and Wembley Stadium were the final pits stops before embarking homeward bound.

Mrs Brown explained that "from start to finish each and every student who attended were exceptional ambassadors for St Cuthbert's. They were polite, courteous and always aware of their surroundings. It was a pleasure to take the students away." 

We would like to say a big thank you to our bus driver Scott, for getting our students home safe and happy!

"Charlotte had such an amazing time! She can't wait for next year." (Ms Davies)
