Second Form English and T&P trip to Canterbury
On 6 March, Second Form students went on the annual trip to Canterbury. We were put into groups and had the opportunity to participate in many different activities as the day went on. We visited the magnificent Canterbury Cathedral, heard a few of the Canterbury Tales and even had the chance to visit the two old sweet shops on Canterbury High Street- yum!
The Cathedral was incredible. We were able to go inside and see the exact spot where the saint Sir Thomas Becket was murdered and the place where his shrine used to be. We also visited the Chapter House in the monks quarters where our school hymn, To be a pilgrim, was written. Later in the day we also had a chance to sing our hymn in the Cathedral.
Overall, we had a fantastic day!
