Year 9 WW1 Experience!

Year 9 students have been treated to a hands on experience about life in the trenches during the First World War. Visitors from Front Line History demonstrated a variety of pieces from their collection including a bayonet and surgeons saw. Students were then able to get hands on and try things for themselves - they modelled protection kits for gas attacks, and even transported each other using a World War One stretcher. The students loved the experience which ties in with their GCSE History course and were assets to the School around our guests.
