The visit was planned to help further pupil learning on WWI – which they have been studying in class. 

As part of the visit pupils had the opportunity to visit the In Flanders Fields Museum and Passchendaele Museum, alongside the Tyne Cot British Cemetery.

The pupils found the visit enjoyable and informative – giving them a deeper understanding of the causes, consequences and significance of the First World War.
