Year 7 History visit to St Albans

Posted: 21/06/18

The History Department took all Year 7 girls on a visit to St Albans Cathedral as part of their studies on the medieval Church in Britain.

The education team at the cathedral had organised some great group activities for the girls, enjoying workshops on illuminated lettering and brass rubbing and going on monastery and pilgrim trails which provided brilliant opportunities to dress up as monks, apothecaries, bishops and nobles. The girls were able to see a display of a replica of the Bayeux Tapestry that had taken more than thirty years for one man to create and to admire the beautiful stained glass and Norman architecture of the cathedral.

We enjoyed lunch outside in the cathedral grounds before setting off back to school with our brass rubbings and illuminated letters which will soon be on display in our classrooms.
