Year 8 English Visit to Flamborough Lighthouse

We were thrilled to be able to take 200 Year 8 students to a local landmark, Flamborough Lighthouse, to enhance their English studies this term. The visit supports the reading of ‘Prince of Mist’ in English as well as linking with their studies in Geography.


Despite the ‘great’ British weather experienced during Tuesday and Friday’s visits, our students’ enthusiasm did not waiver. We explored what Flamborough Head has to offer, thinking as a writer in response to such a vivid setting. We were even lucky enough to see the seals playfully bobbing in the North Sea and of course, the highlight of the day was when we ascended the famous lighthouse for a memorable view. Students were then given the opportunity to use the essence of the day to influence their own creative writing and emulate many famous writers who have also used the coast for inspiration.

Mrs Collins, Assistant Head of English, said “We hope our students have enjoyed their chance to see what our area has to offer in the hope it encourages their understanding and enjoyment of what we study”.
