Year 9 Normandy Trip
Between the 24th and 27th March, 49 Year 9 students had the opportunity to take part in a cross-curricular trip to Normandy centred on French and History. During their stay, they experienced sleeping in an 18th century castle which had been used by the Nazis as a launching base for their V2 bombs.
They discovered the Mont Saint-Michel, they learnt about the Bayeux Tapestry relating the 1066 Battle of Hastings and some of the WW2 D-Day landing landmarks, including the Juno beach memorial museum, Pegasus Bridge, The Merville German battery and the British WW2 cemetery in Bayeux.
Everyone had a great time and can’t wait for the next residential trip!

We also received some lovely comments from parents:
“I just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work with regards to the recent French trip. I know that these things take a lot of time and effort to organise and a group of teenage girls can be challenging at times! My daughter really enjoyed herself and was also particularly grateful for her Easter egg and magnets.
“I just wanted to drop you an email to thank you for organising a really amazing trip to Normandy. My daughter could not stop talking about how enjoyable it was. Yourself and the other staff really gave them a wonderful experience. The whole trip sounded incredibly interesting and to finish off they received chocolate eggs which was very kind of you. You are undoubtedly teacher of the year in their eyes!
Hope that you have recovered!
