    Year 13 English Christina Rossetti Trip

    The students are currently studying the poetry of Rossetti in preparation for A-level English exams and this visit helped to further develop their understanding of her life and work.

     

     

    On Friday 9 March a group of Year 13 English students along with Mr Graham and Ms Gibson walked in the footsteps of the great 19th century poet Christina Rossetti.

    We are fortunate that she lived and worked in London and in order to take advantage of this they embarked on an educational walking tour of some key landmarks associated with the poet.

     

     

    The group toured various locations in Fitzrovia including places where the Rossetti family lived and worked. Following this the group visited the West Cemetery at Highgate -usually only accessible by a special guided tour- where they learnt about the cemetery and concluded the visit at the Rossetti family grave.

    The students are currently studying the poetry of Rossetti in preparation for A-level English exams in June and this visit helped to further develop their understanding of her life and work.
