Just returned from a three day visit to Ironbridge in Shropshire with a group of Year 9 pupils (a repeat of the Activities Week “Revolution” trip I undertook last year). 14 students and three staff (essentially, I was the bus driver) stayed at Wilderhope Manor and spent the remainder of the time learning more about the industrial revolution and dressing up in appropriate costume to experience the “Victorian Town” at Blists Hill.
We all had a really good time, despite the wet weather.
Photo: two pupils insisted on trying to ski/slide on wet meadows at Wilderhope Manor; this degenerated into “knee sliding” - whoever took this photograph was clearly very unprofessional in appearing to condone such irresponsible behaviour!
