Berlin History Trip

Last Wednesday 6th September Mrs Loder and I took another trip to Berlin as part of the History GCSE course. We were accompanied by 19 Year 10 and 11s and, of course, our guide Andy. It was a fantastic trip albeit absolutely exhausting. There was so much to see including the Reichstag building and dome which enabled us to look out across the whole of Berlin (an amazing sight).

 

We also revisited Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp and the Olympic Stadium. An extra this time was Platform 17 which was where the Jews were taken from to go to various camps around Germany and Poland. This was particularly emotive.

The students were a credit to their parents and the school. This was such a successful trip that the Year 10s have asked to go again next year – you can’t get a better recommendation than that!

Many thanks to Mrs Loder for accompanying us.
