In this fully immersive and hands-on session pupils will take a journey to the trenches of France. Here they will join our WWI sergeants as they prepare them for war. Pupils will experience life and conditions in the trenches, daily duties and drill, find out about trench slang, food, equipment and be part of a working party. Pupils will then be put through their paces as they are formed up and taken through parade and rifle drill. This is a truly unique and inspiring session taking place within a life-size 60 foot WWI trench.
