Mr Hudson and Ms Carbro led a trip to Amsterdam during the first weekend of half term. Here are a few highlights from the trip:

1. The hiding place in Corrie ten Boom House in Harleem in the Netherlands. Eight adults were hidden behind this wall for 48 hours as the Nazis unsuccessfully searched the house. Seven survived thanks to the efforts of the Ten Boom family.

2. Outside Anne Frank House, the queues stretched around the block to find out about the amazing teenager Anne Frank's diary captivated many, telling the world about the horror of World War II and the sad reality in the concentration camp.

3. Over 40 excited students cross the bridge through the park entering the historical Belgium town of Bruges, the first stop of the Amsterdam Trip. Four countries in one day; England, France, Belgium and the Netherlands.

2. Outside the commonwealth memorial to all the dead at Tyne Cot in Ypres. Remembrance; "they shall not be forgotten even those still not identified and known only to God."
