An Excursion to Remember

Bathed in History

Yesterday's excursion gave our students the opportunity to explore the breath-taking cities of Bath and Oxford. Splitting into two groups, they set off for a memorable day of history, culture, and of course, shopping. Both trips included tours of university campuses, in keeping with this week's theme of 'The Future'.

The Bath group began with a guided tour and illuminating admissions talk at Bath Spa University. They then toured the ancient Roman baths, before exploring the quaint city centre during their shopping time.
 The Oxford group were treated to a tour of the impressive Magdalen College grounds, learning valuable information about Oxford University and its college system. They then visited the Ashmolean Museum, which was established in 1683 and houses treasures such as Egyptian mummies and sketches by Raphael.
