The annual York trip for the first form. The aim of this trip is to show the children one of England’s most interesting and beautiful northern cities. At one time it was the country’s premier city – greater than London!
The things we intend to do and see:
- Orientation Walk – Getting to know York’s city centre.
- York Castle Museum – Step into a world where time stands still. We shall wander along reconstructed streets and prison cells! Also, we shall see hundreds of household objects which were so familiar to our grand, and great-grand parents, but now part of history. (Authentic examples of washing machines, TVs, telephones rooms interior decoration, prison cells and whole streets … as they have changed over the years.
- Jorvik Viking Centre – An award winning ‘time car’ journey back in time back a 1,000 years to a Viking village!
- Full day visit to Castle Howard
- York Minster Visitors Centre
- Stonegate Walk – Covered shopping in the heart of York.
- Coppergate Shopping – High Street shopping in a traffic free zone.
- Clifford Tower
- National Railway Museum – The world’s largest railway museum.
- A guided ‘Ghost Walk’ at night – On past trips, pupils have told me this was their favourite activity.
