Year 7 had a very interesting trip to St Albans on Wednesday 8th June. We went to the Cathedral, where the guides took us on a tour and explained some of the unique features of the building and the role it has played in the life of the community since the first church was built on the site of St Alban’s martyrdom in Roman Britain. We saw the giant figures used in the annual Alban pilgrimage and we spent some time at the shrine of St Alban who was England’s first martyr.

After lunch on the lawn outside the Cathedral we had a lovely stroll through Verulamium park to the Roman museum, where we saw the mosaics and other Roman relics that have been discovered in the area.

Thanks to the RE team led by Mrs Kelly for such a fun trip!
