The Humanities Department in partnership with Remembrance Travel are planning a 3-day educational visit to the Western Front/ World War 1 Battlefields in both France and Belgium, commencing 25th June 2018. The main purpose of the visit is for our students to experience this very poignant time in our History and support their studies of World War 1 and Trench Warfare.
Please note that pupils do not need to be doing GCSE History to take part in this visit, however, they should have an interest in it. In the past, this has been a very popular visit and students who have participated have been impressed by what they have seen and found it to be a very moving experience.
Under the requirements of the Education Reform Act, we ask for a voluntary contribution of £275 per student, depending on uptake for this visit. No student will be discriminated against if a contribution is not made, however, if insufficient funds are not received, we may have to cancel the visit.
Students wishing to participate in this visit will need to hold a current passport and a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).
There are 40 places available which will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. In order to secure a place on this visit, we will require a £30.00 non-refundable deposit by 29th September 2017.
Places are limited, so please see Mrs Sansam for a consent form and medical form if you are interested.
