On a rather blustery Friday morning, all of Form 2 headed to Burghley House in Stamford to explore its fascinating history.
Teacher of History Mr Robert Evans tells us more:-
“As one of the finest examples of an Elizabethan house, and practically on our doorstep, the trip provided an ideal opportunity to enrich students’ learning about the Tudor and Stuart era, which they are currently studying.
Students enjoyed an action-packed day exploring Tudor food and dining customs, analysing original portraits of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, discovering more about the architecture of the house and enjoying a tour of some of its many rooms.
Form 2 will now consolidate this experience by completing a project on the house in their History lessons.”
