Quizzy Rascals - Year 9 History trip to the Imperial War Museum
Fifty three Year 9 history students took a coach to the Imperial War Museum in London. Mr Leybourne produced a student quiz that ensured that the whole of the museum was visited. On the ground floor the First World War centenary exhibition was a popular stopping off point with new exhibitions covering the outbreak of war to its final conclusion with the Treaty of Versailles… with all the gory bits in between. The History department will be doing the Year 9 baseline assessments about the First World War, so this exhibition was particularly relevant.
Other floors visited included a Holocaust exhibition, The Second World War, the Cold War. The top floor contains a gallery and exhibition of Victoria and George cross medals with individual stories of bravery and valour. All the students deserved a medal as they were impeccably behaved throughout the day and represented the college in the best possible light.
