Our Year 8 and Year 9 pupils recently arrived back from a field trip to Rome, which formed part of their History and Geography studies. Visiting so many inspiring sites has allowed our pupils to assimilate history in a much more practical way and has expanded their cultural knowledge.
Trying to fit in as much of this breath-taking destination as possible, the group started with a guided tour of ancient Pompeii. From here, they headed to Mount Vesuvius to climb to the top of the summit, where they managed to peer inside the crater. Next up was a 4-hour journey to the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City.
While in beautiful Rome the group stopped off at the infamous Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain, enjoying lunch at the Pantheon before exploring the spooky underground Christian cemetery at Domitilla Catacombs. Last but not least, no trip to Rome would be complete without a selfie at the Colosseum.
