On Monday 13th November, 50 Year 7 students took part in a trip to Bath to visit and learn about the Roman Baths and Bath Abbey. In the baths they took part in a teaching session involving actual Roman objects discovered within the Bath Complex and learnt more about Roman life, food and clothing. After this they had a self guided tour around the Bath complex, learning much more about how it operated.
In the afternoon, the students moved onto Bath Abbey and walked around learning and admiring its beautiful architecture and history. They then proceeded to have a guided tour right to the very top of the tower of the abbey, involving talks on the bells, roof and features of the abbey. At the top of the tower, the students were able to see 360 degree views of Bath and its surrounding countryside. Once this was complete, the students returned to school having learnt much about these two distinct but interesting periods of history.
