Students from Upper Schoolroom and Seniors headed to Normandy at the start of the Easter holidays to tour the sites of the Normandy Landings of World War Two. Alongside visits to the beaches themselves, we also saw Pegasus Bridge, Merville Battery and Pointe du Hoc, captured as part of the landings. As well as the amazing remains of the Mulberry harbours built and floated across the channel to allow the Allies to invade and the Peace Museum at Caen. A short silence at Bayeux Cemetery helped us to reflect on all that we had seen and learnt before we headed to Bayeux to admire the tapestry and then Mont Saint-Michel to complete our cultural tour.
