As part of their year 11 studies students visited the Heugh Battery in Hartlepool. They learned all about the attack by German dreadnoughts and about what life was like in the trenches during WWI. Students also took part in handling weapons from the First World War. The staff at the museum commented on the excellent behaviour and attitude of the students.
