Barlby High students take History lessons to London

Year 11 History students from Barlby High School have been enjoying the delights of London in the run up to their GCSE exams.

As part of their studies into Elizabethan England, students visited Shakespeare’s Globe, where they had a guided tour of the reconstructed theatre. They also visited the accompanying exhibition, where they saw costumes worn on stage and in film, as well as learning more about the ‘stews’ of Southwark and the area’s association with cruel sports such as bear baiting.

As part of their Crime and Punishment unit, students also visited the Tower of London and the Clink Prison, one of England’s oldest and most notorious prisons, dating back to 1144. There was also the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of Jack the Ripper and learn about the lives of people living in the East End of London during the ‘Autumn of Terror’ of 1888.

Students also experienced the Sky Garden at 20 Fenchurch Street (better known as the “walkie talkie”) which offers 360-degree uninterrupted views across the City of London. Students were able to wander around the exquisitely landscaped gardens, observation decks and open-air terrace of London’s highest public garden.

Louise Fillingham, Assistant Faculty Leader, Humanities at Barlby High School said “As part of the school’s commitment to enabling pupils to ‘live life to the full’, this is just one opportunity offered to our History students. Learning is no longer just about what we do in the classroom; we know we get the most engagement and success when we bring learning to life.” 

Principal Julie Caddell added “As a school within the Hope Learning Trust we want to see all our young people flourish and have access to opportunities both across the curriculum and outside of normal lessons. Trips such as this are enjoyable and memorable, especially in the lead-up to GCSEs, but they have an important part to play in reinforcing our students’ learning.”

Barlby High School is part of the Hope Learning Trust, York, a growing multi-academy trust for both primary and secondary schools.  A Church of England trust established to bring together church and community schools, Hope now has nine partner schools including Manor Church of England Academy and Vale of York Academy in York.
