During the penultimate weekend of the Summer term 48 IVth Form pupils and five teachers visited the First World War Battlefields of Ypres and the Somme. We managed to pack in visits to the Flanders Museum in Ypres, Vimy Ridge and a preserved trench in the town of Albert, to name but a few. There were links, also, to the experiences of Old Cranleighans, with the laying of a wreath at St George’s Chapel, the site of the School memorial plaque in Ypres, as well as at Tyne Cot cemetery.

We were also very lucky to have Colonel Gerald Strickland (parent of a current IVth Form pupil) on the trip and he gave a fantastic insight into life as a soldier today and in World War One.
