Year 7 excursion to Conwy Castle
At the end of June, Year 7 students visited the impressive Conwy Castle in North Wales, part of the Castle and Town Walls of Edward I World Heritage Site.
The castle was completed back in 1287 after five years of construction, at a cost of £15,000 and remains one of the finest medieval fortresses still standing in Britain today.
Students had the opportunity to explore the magnificent walls, towers and Great Hall before enjoying a picnic lunch on the East Barbican, overlooking the steps to the Water Gate. The visit brought home to students the incredible achievements of the craftsmen that built the castles of North Wales.
