History Trip to Stirling

15th May, 2019

School Trip

The II Form History trip to Stirling on Monday 13th May gave boys the opportunity to get hands-on with many of the events, figures and issues they have been studying as part of their Scottish Wars of Independence topic.

The day began with a visit to the Battle of Bannockburn Visitor Centre. After learning about the events leading up to the battle itself, the boys were divided into two teams and tasked with re-creating the battle through a computerised war game. Fraser A, in his role as King Robert the Bruce of Scotland, emerged victorious.

Before lunch, there was a walk through Stirling’s Old Town; taking in sights such as the Mercat Cross, the former town jail and the Church of the Holy Rude. Recharged after a packed lunch in front of Stirling Castle, the trip continued with a visit to the Castle itself. Time in the Great Hall was followed by a demonstration of medieval music with two costumed experts. Following a stroll through the rest of the Castle grounds the trip came to an end with an ice cream in the sun.
