Year 8 visit the ‘birthplace’ of Gothic

Yesterday, our Year 8 pupils went to on an English trip to Strawberry Hill House, Horace Walpole’s home, where ‘Gothic’ was created. After a longer-than-expected journey due to traffic problems on the M3, they went on a tour of the house and every room was different, projecting a Gothic atmosphere with shadows, darkness and candle light. In the latter part of the day, the pupils worked in groups to create their own Gothic comics, which were all fantastic. Great work, Year 8!
