Visit from Repton Historians

01 Mar 2018

On Monday 5th February, Years 7 & 8 received a visit from Dr Nat Pitts and Mr Will Odell from Repton School.  Their visit was to focus on developing pupils skills of source analysis.  Both Dr Pitts and Mr Odell spoke with great passion about history and set the pupils the task of analysing the role of Fieldmarshall Hague – were the soldiers of World War One really ‘Lions lead by donkeys’? This question caused great debate and pupils skills in analysing source material was certainly developed.  It was a pleasure to have Dr Pitts and Mr Odell visit and it was a valued visit.
