Still not sure about taking part, have a read of the following testimonials from teachers who went on a Battlefield Tour in the autumn of 2017...
Absolutely outstanding tour!! Such an interesting trip. Back to back activities. The tour guides were so knowledgeable. If you like your History, you would love this!!
Very well organised and professionally organised. All staff highly proficient and knowledgeable.
All staff/personnel who travelled with us were superb in terms of knowledge, professionalism, friendliness and interaction with pupils. Each one brought a distinct contribution and added to the experience
Fantastic experience – wish we could have brought more students!
The information provided was enlightening. What we saw on the tour gave us a deeper understanding of many aspects of WW1, its aftermath and short and long term effects. This was a really fantastic opportunity for teachers and students!
A fantastic tour! Really pleased. Sites excellently interpreted!
Focus question, with dedicated sites and excellent idea. Allows full development of lessons.
The resources used were excellent and allowed a fantastic new understanding of the stories behind each battle and grave. We loved the opportunity to research local soldiers as well.
Really impressed with the enquiry-led approach to learning at each of the sites. It meant that students were encouraged to think independently, pose their own questions and find solutions for themselves. This trip has exceeded my expectations!!
An excellent range of activities and itinerary. Great key questions posed daily. Great resources and contextual information for ‘narrative’ instruction.
Activities were creative and thoughtful, optimising the value and poignancy of the sites we visited.
Our guide and IOE lead had fantastic detailed knowledge which was expertly shared.
The tour guide was amazingly informative.
Lots of interesting and emotive information learnt, despite knowing a lot already! Activities made it come alive and also personal to our local area.
Tour well pitched for SEN students. Lots of activities ‘chunked’ and manageable. Wonderful trip. Thank you!
Very well pitched for our students who gained a huge amount from it.
Modern soldier’s perspective was useful and interesting
The army representative was outstanding and his contribution to the trip was a large component for its success.
