The Misery Trip

 

Clevedon Learning Trust students enjoy an inspirational trip for their English Literature course.

 

Dubbed "The Misery" trip, sixth form students from Clevedon School journeyed to Haworth to learn about the context of the Brontes family for their English literature texts.

 

The students engaged in discussion about the context of the mid-19th century and walked up to windswept Penistone Crag to experience the Yorkshire moors.

 

The following day, the students visited Ted Hughes country and the place of his birth before visiting Sylvia Plath's grave at Heptonstall.

 

Head of English Jo Carrington said: “This was a fantastic experience for the students. The students learnt so much. Already their writing has become deeper as they understand the lives and environment of their chosen authors for A Level.”
