Year 7 Jurassic Coast Visit 22nd May to 26th May 2017

Tuesday 23rd may

Another excellent day on our Jurassic Coast Tour. Today we took a ride on the Swanage steam railway, toured the historic Corfe Castle to learn about its history and gruesome secrets and visited the ape rescue centre at Monkey World.

Tonight we went to the beach and sports fields.

The weather today has been cloudier but pleasant and warm.

The students have been excellent. Pictures are being uploaded.


We have arrived safely in Swanage and enjoyed a great first day.

This afternoon we visited Durlston Country Park and did a town tour of Swanage. We have enjoyed a great day of weather.

This evening we spent some time on the beach and played games on the field.

It is 10pm and everyone is about to go to sleep!

Some pictures are attached in the website.
