Year 10 Thackray Medical Museum Trip

Dear Parents,

We are pleased to inform you that we have arranged for the Year 10 GCSE history students to visit the Thackray Medical Museum in Leeds to further support their studies with ‘Health and the People.’

The visit will take place on Thursday 14th February 2019.

 At the museum students will have a guided tour offering an insight into public health in 1800s and will be given a seminar entitled ‘Pain, Pus and Blood’! More information about the museum can be found here;

Students will be expected to:

  • wear school uniform,
  • bring a packed lunch and non-fizzy drink (in an unbreakable container,)
  • carry personal items in a small bag that allows them to still use their hands.

The journey to Leeds is approximately two and a half hours therefore students will need to arrive at school at 7am, we will be leaving school at 7.15am.  We aim to depart from the museum at around 3.30pm so intend to be back at school by 6pm, traffic depending.

In line with Governors’ ‘Policy on Educational Visits’ we now seek a voluntary contribution of £27.50 to cover transport, fees and insurance. If insufficient payments are received, we may be forced to cancel the trip.

Please return completed slips to school and pay via our online payment system (Payment4schools) by Friday 1st February. When paying online please record the receipt number on the reply slip.  If you have any queries relating to online payments or concerns about payments generally, please contact the school office on; 01527 892867.

We look forward to taking the students on this informative and interesting visit.

Yours sincerely,


Mrs L Leeson

History Mentor
