At the end of November, Year 4 were lucky enough to visit the fortified Manor House, Hoghton Tower. Children were able to dress up in traditional Tudor costumes, before exploring the many rooms & halls the Level 1 heritage site has to offer; a select few children were even knighted in the banqueting hall!
After lunch, the children were given the opportunity to muse over the Tower’s fine doll house collection, before braving the site’s underground passageways. The children were encapsulated by the staff and their encyclopaedic knowledge of both the history of the house and King James I’s subsequent visit in August of 1617.
On behalf of QEGS, the Year 4 Form Tutors would like to thank Hoghton Tower and their guides for making the visit one that neither staff nor student will forget in a hurry.
