Over the last two weeks our Year 8’s have had the opportunity to visit Bradgate Park in Leicestershire as they take part in fieldwork for Geography.
An important part of the curriculum pupils got the chance to explore the natural landscape and some of the key features of the acres of land left in trust for the people of Leicestershire by the Gray family.
Pupils got the chance to explore Bradgate in all its glory with the chance to check out the visitor centre and even pay a visit to Old John.
Old John is the highest hill in the park and at the top shares its name with the folly that sits upon it, built in 1784. Known for its mug shape our pupils got the chance to view the whole of the park and the fantastic landscape of Leicestershire.
It was a really wonderful trip and we were once again proud of how our pupils showcased our Etone Values. We can’t wait for more trips as we head into summer term.
