Miss Higgins selected Charlie Broadbent and Kieran Goulding from Year 11 to take part in a First World War battlefields tour, as a reward for their enthusiasm in history lessons. The tour was fully funded by the Department for Education (DfE) and provided a variety of perspectives and insights into the history of the Western Front. They were led by an expert from the Guild of Battlefield Guides, also a serving solider accompanied the trip to provide a contrast to serving as a solider 100 years ago.
