Year 7 Most Able Trip to Explore Georgian Bath

Ms Hunter reports: On Friday 27 January, 2017, Ms Hunter and Mr Morris took a group of Year 7 students out of school to experience Georgian Bath and visit the Jane Austen Centre. They were given a one hour tour of the entre, finding out about who Jane Austen was, about her family and why she is going to be on the new £10 note! Students even got to try on some Georgian clothing and write with quills.

After that, the group enjoyed an hour walking tour of Georgian Bath. We wandered the streets Jane would have walked down, looking at the grand boulevard she lived near when her father was alive, to the worst street in Bath when her father had died and they had little money. Students found out about how Georgian society was all about socialising, even gossiping in the Cross Bath whilst wearing your bonnet or tall hat! Students heard about Daylight Robbery taxes during the era and we even visited the part of Bath where duals were held and the saying 'pistols at dawn' was created.

Students were set a trip challenge and will be giving an assembly on what they have learnt on Friday 3 February. More photos from the trip can be viewed here.
