Above & Beyond Extra: British Museum Trip

On Friday 9th February, Mr Tibbey took 14 students out on an exciting afternoon to visit The British Museum. 

Based near Russell Square in London, The British Museum is a public museum dedicated to human history, art and culture. Its permanent collection of eight million works is the largest in the world. To ensure they got the most out of their afternoon exploring the museum, Mr Tibbey had prepared a scavenger hunt for our students in the museum, where they had to follow a series of clues in a booklet, with the answers found in the exhibits.

The students got stuck into the challenge and had lots of fun finding the answers and learning lots of new things about the world around them; from ancient Syria to 18th Century Japan. The purpose of the trip was to engage students in culture on offer right on our doorsteps in London and inspire them to try something new. 

Mr Tibbey, who led the trip, said: “Students were engaged throughout the day and had a great time learning about Historical topics they had already learned about in Year 7 and 8, as well as some that they will come across in the future. I could not be prouder of the maturity they displayed when conducting themselves on the trip.”
