English Literature WW1 Battlefields Tour

English Literature WW1 Battlefields Tour

During February half term, four students had the privilege of visiting Belgium and France on a very special centenary WW1 tour. During this four day tour, students were lucky to walk through historical sites and cemeteries remembering the fallen soldiers who sacrificed their lives.

Pupils were given the opportunity of reading, interpreting and critically thinking about the literature written by men and women whose lives changed as a result of the conflict.

”Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots, but limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind”

Wilfred Owen


“Overall, I massively enjoyed the experience of meeting new people from different schools as well as learning about the great writers of WW1. This trip allowed me to have a greater understanding of English Literature as well as WW1 history.” Jannatul Rashid, 9O
