Mrs Morwood reports ‘The Fifth Form historians went on a fast and furious trip to the Royal Army Medical Museum before half-term. The girls were given an excellent revision session run by the museum curator where they were using primary sources from the collection to answer GCSE exam questions. The girls had an impressive wealth of knowledge on medical history and impressed the curator with their enthusiasm in the subject matter. The tour around the museum’s collection was also very useful for the girls as it not only spanned our whole period but also focused on one of our key themes which is of medicine and war.  The museum had kindly tailored the visit as a bespoke revision session and it was hugely valuable to the girls at this stage in their studies as they now focus on revision and exam practice. This is a fantastic museum and, being local, we were able to gain maximum exposure from a very little time out of school and achieved a great deal in the two hours.’
