The students in the Palace


The Year 12 History class took a trip to Hampton Court, the famous Palace of Henry VIII. In Year 12, students study the A-Level OCR module 'The Early Tudors', which includes Henry VII, VIII, Edward VI and Mary I; this trip helped to bring that past back to life again. On the tour the students got to stand in the Great Hall of Henry VIII, sit in Henry’s Council Chambers in an interactive experience and walk the beautiful manicured gardens at the Palace. It was a great day out and the trip will surely give the History students at The Academy a greater understanding of this period of history. Rob Brown, Head of History
