Conwy Castle Trip

As part of their study of medieval Wales, Year 7 visited Conwy Castle.

It was a really enjoyable day where students got the chance to climb the towers and walk the castle walls built by Edward I as part of his ‘ring of castles’.

King Edward I and his architect, Master James of St George, built both castle and walls in four years between 1283 and 1287.

Mrs. Wright -Davies, Curriculum Leader for History said,

”We had a very interesting day learning all about the castle and its history. Even though the weather wasn’t at its best all the pupils thought it really worthwhile and brought a little piece of Welsh to life”.

Students ended the day with an ice cream on the sea front!
