Northumberland trip takes first year pupils to islands and castles

Pupils at Alnwick Castle

40 of our first year pupils were in Northumberland over the weekend on an educational trip where they explored this beautiful, unspoiled part of England.

Pupils in Alnwick CastleOn the trip, the boys and girls took a boat trip to the Farne Islands to do some puffin and seal spotting, visited Alnwick Castle, where part of the Harry Potter films were set, and enjoyed hearing tales of the deadly plants in Alnwick’s infamous poison garden, before taking part in the fun Dragon Quest.

In the evening, they had fun acting out the famous Northumbrian legend The Laidly Worm of Spindletson Heugh, as well as watching the Alnwick Olympic festival’s closing ceremony in the castle grounds.
