06 JuneImperial War Museum : Year 9, INVITE ONLYThis is an excellent opportunity for pupils to consolidate their knowledge about the Germany, WWII and the Holocaust, and attend classes run by the Imperial War Museum.  Further information about exhibits at the Imperial War Museum can be found on www.iwm.org.uk.  The trip will be run for those pupils who have a good attendance, positive attitude to learning and exceptional behaviour. We will leave school at 9.00am and returning to school by 5:30pm depending on traffic.  We will be travelling by coach. The students may bring money on the day for the Imperial War Museum gift shop. We would recommend that no valuable items are taken on the trip, as unfortunately, staff cannot take responsibility for any items that become lost or are stolen from the students. For this reason we would ask that these items are not taken on the trip. 09:00 - 17:30 13 JuneImperial War Museum : Year 10, INVITE ONLYThis is an excellent opportunity for pupils to consolidate their knowledge about the Germany, WWII and the Holocaust, and attend classes run by the Imperial War Museum.
