History comes to life

Summer has been a very busy time for the History Department. Year 10 students had a day trip to Battle Abbey to explore the events of 1066. Holocaust survivor Eva Clarke addressed all Year 9 pupils about her mother’s amazing story of endurance. Sixth Form historians attended talks in Norwich about the history of genocide and journeyed to The Guildhall Library in London to hear Professor Dr John Guy give a lecture on Sir Thomas Gresham, nephew of the School’s founder Sir John, on the 500th anniversary of his birth.
