On a glorious Thursday morning, eighteen Year 8 students set out for The Churchill War Rooms in London.
This concealed pocket of history lay untouched from the end of World War Two until 1984 when it was re-opened to the public as a museum. It offered students an insight into the world beneath the pavements, from where Winston Churchill conducted the war effort and oversaw many of the key decisions that would shape the outcome of the conflict.
Students enjoyed the opportunity to explore the warren-like system of underground rooms, each with an intrinsic role to play, alongside engaging with the interactive specially designated Churchill section of the museum, allowing visitors to explore the entire life of the former Prime Minister.
Students conducted themselves excellently throughout the day, and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to lunch outside in Parliament Square. An excellent and informative day had by all.
