The History department runs two trips in KS3. In year 7 pupils have the opportunity to visit Lincoln Castle. As part of the trip they get to walk the battlements, see the Magna Carta and experience what life was really like in Medieval England. In year 9 pupils have the opportunity to visit the World War One battlefields. This allows students to experience life as a World War One soldier. This trip is also of benefit to those pupils who decide to study History in KS4.
