Pupils get a taste of military discipline

2017-04-13T20:19:42+00:00 October 7th, 2016|
On Tuesday 4 October, Year 9 got a taste of military discipline and life with a History Study Day at Preston which focused on the life of the British soldier in the First World War.

They visited Fulwood Barracks and the Lancashire Museum in Preston for an hands-on day which included fiercesome drill from an authentic Regimental Sergeant-Major, trying on soldier’s kit, handling objects including an incredibly valuable VC, experiencing life in a recreated trench, rifle drill and learning about medical care from a VAD nurse.

Hermione Baines, Head of History said: “The experienced interpreters were really able to bring to life so many aspects of what it must have been like for ordinary men who suddenly found themselves swept up in the horrors of the First World War, supporting the work Year 9 are doing in their History lessons this half-term.”
