In October two Year 10 pupils, Charlie and Dylan attended a trip to the Battlefields in France and Belgium. Whilst there the Boys attended Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery where there are 11,000 war graves. Then it was on to the Passchendaele Museum and reconstructed trenches and the Last Post ceremony at Menin Gate. The boys also got to see how the Germans commemorate their war dead after visiting a German cemetery and had sessions in the evening from the British Army focusing on the kit of a soldier then and now. The boys also got to spend the day at the Somme, checking out preserved trenches, battle sites and different Commonwealth war grave sites, hearing interesting and emotional stories to bring the battlefields to life.
