On Monday 14th November, the English department took thirty two Year 7 students to the historic John Ryland’s Library in Manchester for a special tour and writing workshop.

They were shown valuable texts such as a second edition Shakespeare folio from the 1600s and a piece of the actual bible found in Ancient Egypt.

After the tour, the students took part in a Gothic writing exercise in which they produced a story for publication on the Manchester University website. This built upon their prior learning of Gothic literature which they have been studying in lessons this half term.

Mr Gilgun, who led the trip reported,

“Being able to see books that were over 2,000 years old was really interesting and the students produced some fantastic descriptions of the library”.

Well done to everyone involved.
