Extra Curricular Activities
The department is committed to enabling pupils to engage in regular learning outside of the classroom. As a result trips are organised at each key stage. In year 7 the whole year group visits Kenilworth Castle where the development of the site and it’s changing use over time is explored.
In year 10 students visit two museums in London, The Old Operating Theatre and the Hunterian Museum both of which provide the chance for students to expand upon their knowledge of key topics within the Medicine and Treatment module at GCSE.
In sixth form, year 13 visit The People’s History Museum and The Imperial War Museum, Manchester during the autumn term. This provides students with useful resources and experiences that assist in both of their A2 modules.
In April 2014, A - level History students in both year 12 and 13 will be given the opportunity to embark upon a four day study tour of the Normandy beaches in France which will also include a visit to the see the Bayeux Tapestry.
