York & Holland

During the February Half term holiday, a group of year 7 to 12 students set off for a very snowy expedition. We arrived in York to a delicious supper and set about settling in to our (allegedly) haunted guest house. The next morning, we visited the Yorvik centre, and our year 7 Sam even battled a Viking warrior with his newly purchased wooden sword! We then visited York Castle museum, and even sat in Dick Turpin’s cell. The evening saw a chilling ghost tour through the old town, and it was now time to bid farewell to York. We set sail for Holland on the overnight ferry from Newcastle. The weather was calm, and we weren’t too sea sick to enjoy the wonderful buffet on board. When we finally arrived in Amsterdam, we visited many sites, such as the Anne Frank House, the Van Gogh Museum, the Dungeons (thanks to Mr Laird) and the wax museum.

We had a wonderful time, and returned to Liverpool completely exhausted! Many thanks to all of the students who took part, it certainly was a pleasure to spend our holidays with you. Thanks also to the teachers Mr Bradfield Smith, Mr Laird, Miss Kinloch, Mr Phylip-Jones and of course Mr Clark! We will certainly miss “Clarkey FM” on our tour next year!
