Battlefields Trip

In late September, 30 pupils from Year 9 travelled to Belgium and northern France in this centenary year to visit the sites and memorials of the Great War trenches. 

Mr Brooks reports that the group visited the Thiepval memorial to the fallen at the Somme and the Menin Gate in Ypres. Some of the pupils laid wreaths at the names of QES pupils who had given their lives during the War and others researched some of their own ancestors.

Thanks to Mr Brooks for taking the photos
