FORM 5 VISIT TO THE UNITED KINGDOM

From September 24th to 27th Form 5 GCSE History students took part in a visit to the United Kingdom. The purpose of the visit was to offer insight into some of the units of study for their forthcoming exams in June 2014.
Pupils visited the Cabinet War Rooms and the Imperial War Museum in London. Here they were able to experience first-hand the underground cabinet rooms where Churchill led the war effort as well as visiting the recently opened Winston Churchill Museum. This charts the life of the British Prime Minister and displays many artifacts from his private collection. The Imperial War Museum visit gave pupils the opportunity to visit the ‘Britain at War’ exhibit. This depicts the life of an ordinary British family during the war, with special emphasis on the Blitz, rationing and the evacuation of children.
In the City of Bath, pupils were able to enjoy the sights of a UNESCO, World Heritage City and experience the beauty and splendor of the Roman Baths. A visit to the ‘American Museum in Britain’ afforded pupils an insight into the birth of the United States and a visit to the temporary exhibit on ‘Gangsters and Gunslingers.´
The Univeristy of Bath, ranked 3rd in the Sunday Times University listings and 1st for student satisfaction played host to Kensington School students, and these were able to enjoy a flavour of university life and experience the bustle of Fresher´s Fair.
The trip was a great success; we hope the students enjoyed it and look forward to similar trips in the future.
