History teaching staff and 39 S3 pupils - all currently studying the history of Nazi Germany - enjoyed a very busy visit to Bavaria in May. Although they had to cope with the effects of the BA strike (return coach journey to London instead of flights), "We had a full and memorable visit to Bavaria," says History teacher Claire Singerman.
"We followed in the footsteps of Hitler through the streets of Munich and learned more about the events which made his strident nationalism possible. Moving experiences such as a visit to Dachau Concentration Camp and the opportunity to stand where Hitler once stood at the Nazi Rally Grounds at Nuremberg brought History alive."
Still, all was not hard work - a rap competition on the last night was great fun and showed the talent of pupils and teachers alike!
