On Wednesday 17th October, the Classics department took 18 enthusiastic Fifth Form Gratinists to visit the Roman baths. We set off bright and early and gave the pupils plenty of time to explore the complex. Each pupil received a headset which provided them with all the information they needed as they inspected the ancient artefacts and architecture. The pupils also experienced chatting to ‘real-life Romans’ and decided to test them on their Latin knowledge! Every pupil then got the chance to try the healing waters of Aquae Sulis but most did not go back for more! After a spot of lunch, we visited the beautiful Bath Abbey with its stunning architecture. The pupils very much enjoyed translating the Latin inscriptions dotted around the abbey and were keen to share their grammatical knowledge. Overall, it was a great trip and we look forward to it again next year.
