Berlin Trip

Friday, March 8, 2024

To embed their learning in GCSE History, Mr Davies, Head of History, took students from Years 10 and 11 on a four day trip to Berlin.

Students visited the Bundestag (German parliament), the Hohenschönhausen Memorial (former Stasi prison) in East Berlin, Checkpoint Charlie, the Berlin Wall, the Brandeburg Gate, the site of Hitler's underground bunker and Sachsenhausen concentration camp.

Ollie Marshall, Year 10, said he was shocked at the lack of a landmark or signage pointing out Hitler's bunker. He also said about the Stasi prison: "The fact that prisoners were kept in total isolation with no hope of release, just for speaking out against the state, right up to 1989, was mind blowing".

Thanks to Mr Davies, Mr Wilde, Mrs Brakes and Miss Clifford for travelling with the students and making the trip possible.
