Picture of our students in PolandFourteen students from our A level Academy recently returned from a fantastic three-day trip to historical Krakow, Poland.

The group, who are undertaking A levels in History and Religious Studies explored the town of Krakow including Wawel Castle and St Mary's Basilica, shopping at the local markets and sampling traditional Polish food before taking part in the Oscar Schindler Factory tour where they learned the incredible story of the factory worker who saved more than 1,000 lives during the Second World War.

Tutors and students also visited the former Nazi concentration camp, Auschwitz-Birkenau, learning about the horrific terror and genocide that took place at the camp, seeing first-hand the remaining gas chambers, the evidence of crimes museum and the inhumane living conditions.

Students described the trip as "unforgettable" and "once in a lifetime".
