In April 2016, as part of a national competition organised by the Historical Association, a group of Year 7 students worked with David Edge, Head of Conservation at The Wallace Collection in London, in order to design a museum exhibition to commemorate the Battle of Agincourt 1415.

This involved them researching the battle, selecting suitable objects and considering the issues surrounding their display. The students composed labels and created an animation of the battle to display on the screen in the Library Conference Room.  The exhibition ran during Year 7 parents' evening, a full governors' meeting and was re-launched for the summer term open day, so plenty of people got to walk around it and admire the students' work.

We were thrilled to be one of only two schools commended for our exhibitions. The students were rewarded with official Historical Association badges, and a free visit to the Wallace Collection to learn about the battle in more detail. The most memorable activity at the museum workshop was hurling darts at a knight to understand archery trajectories!
