Somme Trip 2019

On Friday June 7th some of our Year 8 students visited the battlefields of the Somme , seeing key sites and paying tribute to those who fell during The Great War.
 
72 students made the journey, going to the underground museum in Albert, the Lochnagar Crater and the Beaumont-Hamel battlefield. The latter site had the second highest casualty rate in the July 1st 1916 advance, and students were able to walk in the footsteps of the soldiers who gave their all.
 
The group also visited the Memorials to the Missing at Pozieres and Thiepval, with each student leaving a tribute to the sacrifice made by a particular soldier.
 
This visit is the sixth of its kind made by the school since 2014 and takes the number of Joyce Frankland Academy students to have visited the WW1 battlefields to more than 400.
 

Here we present students' reflections on the journey, with their thoughts on what they learned and what their lasting memories will be.
