The 13-15 students took a journey through time yesterday as they explored Stonehenge and the historic city of Bath, whilst the 16-18 group went to Bristol and saw the SS Great Britain and the Clifton Suspension Bridge.
Whilst the drop-off point was a fair walk from Stonehenge itself, the students took full advantage of the opportunity by scoping out the landscape for photographs in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside. The effort was worth it, as Stonehenge’s iconic Stone Circle did not disappoint.
Built from stones imported from Wales and constructed for an unknown purpose, Stonehenge remains a mysterious monument to a time gone by, and offered a rare opportunity for the group to explore one of England’s oldest landmarks. The site included a visitor centre and even Neolithic houses, fleshing out the experience and making the day that much more immersive.

After what proved to be a long trek, the students were able to unwind in the famous city of Bath, known the world over for its Roman heritage and stunning architecture.
Meanwhile, the older group departed for the stunning coastal city of Bristol, where they saw Brunel’s legendary SS Great Britain, itself now a museum to its history. She was the longest passenger sea vessel in the world between 1845 and 1856, and nowadays still provides a great learning experience.
The students made the most of the fantastic weather by exploring all the city had to offer, including the Clifton Suspension Bridge and the maritime heritage of the city.
