A Level visit to Hampton Court Palace


Our A level historians were lucky enough to spend the day at Hampton Court Palace and take part in a specialist session on the “Causes of the English Reformation.” Despite a very wet and windy start with storm Doris doing her best to delay us, we arrived at Hampton Court safely. We completed a fascinating tour of the buildings, including being given access to private quarters. After lunch the students all took part in the A level history session, led by one of the resident experts at Hampton Court. This session involved the study of primary evidence to analyse the relative importance of various causes of the English Reformation.  Despite a very long journey all the students had a fantastic day and found the experience really helped to bring Tudor history to life.
