Tewkesbury students visit Imperial War Museum

Forty Year 9 students from Tewkesbury Academy embarked on an insightful educational visit to the Imperial War Museum in London to explore their exhibits of the Holocaust galleries.

The students are currently learning about this monumental and harrowing period of events in history. Visiting the galleries helped students improve their knowledge and understanding of how and why the Holocaust happened and the enduring impact on humanity.

They engaged in workshops before and after touring the galleries. After being divided into small groups, they used iPads to navigate through the exhibits, and were guided to significant artifacts that prompted contemplation and reflection.

Teacher Chris Thomson, who organised the trip, said: “It was a thought-provoking and sobering experience. The students engaged really well, and their conduct was excellent, a great learning experience all round.”
