History/Geography visit to The National Maritime Museum

6th June 2019

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I am writing to inform you of a History/Geography visit to The National Maritime Museum in London on Thursday 20th June, 2019, for all Upper Transits.

For the historians, this forms part of their GCSE  course where they research an historic Elizabethan environment. In their examination next year, they will answer several questions on the Spanish Armada and therefore this visit will be ideal preparation as they will be able to see the original Armada Portrait of Elizabeth I, and explore other aspects of the naval battle.

The geographers and other students will also find the visit invaluable as the museum spans so much that is important in England’s cultural and naval history and we are sure that the visit will provide curriculum enrichment for all the girls.

We will leave school at 8.30am and we expect to be back in school by 4.30-5.00pm. Home clothes may be worn, but the girls are representing the school and therefore should be smart (no jeans) with sensible shoes and a coat, because we will be outside some of the time and good weather cannot be guaranteed. Packed lunches will be provided by the school but if the girls wish to bring additional snacks that will be fine. A small backpack for packed lunches and pencil cases is recommended.

The approximate cost of the visit will be £16. Some girls may also want to bring a small amount of pocket money for souvenirs.

If we are running late on the way back, girls will be able to call in order to give a revised expected time of arrival.

Should you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.

With best wishes,

Mrs Julia Sherbrooke
