In a few weeks time, 19 students and two teachers will take part in our English/History educational trip to Edinburgh. The trip has been specifically designed to strengthen the students’ knowledge and understanding regarding Cambridge IGCSE Literature and GCSE History. Students will gain insight into the historical and literary significance of Victorian and early 20th Century Edinburgh.

A host of activities and tasks are planned including a visit to the Scottish National Portrait Gallery where the exhibition Remembering The Great War marks the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, providing an insight into the people involved and the role that Scotland played. There will be an opportunity to visit The People's Story Museum which explores the lives of Edinburgh’s ordinary people at work and play from the late 18th century to today. 

The highlight of the Literature part of the itinerary includes a theatre performance of Pat Barker’s play Regeneration which tells the story of the First World War poet Siegfried Sassoon. Students have studied Sassoon’s poetry about the horrors of WWI. Students will join an insightful talk, by members of the cast, about the production before going in to watch the play. That will be followed up with  a  poetry writing workshop at the Kings theatre with established poet and mentor, Jacqui Rowe, exploring themes of war and responses to war. To strengthen the students’ understanding of the set text The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, a walking tour of the Old and New Towns will explain the creative imagination of Robert Louis Stevenson. 

There will be fun and relaxation too with a Come Dine with Me evening at the Youth Hostel where students will prepare dinner for each other, a traditional dinner in a fish and chip shop and a picnic at St. Margaret’s loch. 

You will be able to follow the events of the trip on our trip blog.
