Year 10 History Students to Berlin (Activities Week)

This year the History Department will be organising a four-day trip to Berlin from Monday 9th July to Thursday 12th July. This trip will be open to Year 10 students who have opted for GCSE History and many of the sites we will be visiting will be directly relevant to two of the modules that students will study in KS4. We will be focusing on sites and museums that shed light on the rise and fall of the Nazi Party as well as the tension that gripped the city during the Cold War.

The travel company we will be using is Anglia Tours. Please see the following link –
