Y7 trip to Canterbury Cathedral
Year 7 visited Canterbury Cathedral on Tuesday as part of their History studies.
Soon after our arrival, we went to the Education Centre to watch a 15 minute film on the history of the Cathedral before having a tour of the Cathedral; entering through the South West door. Everyone was impressed with the size and grandeur of the building and we spent 10 minutes in the nave admiring the architecture.
Year 7 have been completing an in depth study of the murder of Thomas Becket and it was particularly relevant to visit the Martyrdom - the place in the Cathedral where the murder took place. We also visited the Eastern Crypt, the original site of Becket’s tomb and both the Jesus and St Gabriel’s chapels. From the Bell Harry Tower and then walked into the Quire - a part of the Cathedral very familiar to Mr Everist during his days as a pupil at the King’s Canterbury school. It was also interesting to see the tombs of King Henry IV and the Black Prince.
The excellent weather allowed us to have lunch outside and we even had time to visit the Cathedral shop before returning to the coach park.
