Year 7 History Trip – 24.03.17

Mr Gerschler with this report on the Year 7 History Trip:

“The History Department were delighted to take 40 Year 7 pupils to visit Manchester University on Friday 24th March 2017 to experience how Ancient History and Classics are studied at University.  The trip provided the opportunity for pupils to explore Roman Manchester and the ancient world at the Manchester Museum and was a reward for all the hard work that these 40 pupils had put into their studies recently. The trip was fantastic and we all thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the (strangely sunny for once!) University. Pupils managed to learn some Latin, create interactive Roman Manchester iPad exhibits at the Manchester Museum and learn all about underwater archaeology by studying the famous Uluburun shipwreck. I was massively impressed with our Year 7 pupils and received countless compliments from Professors and PhD students about their genuine enthusiasm, impeccable manners and impressive knowledge! Well done to all involved!”
