School History Trip to The Somme

School History Trip to The Somme

On a history school trip to the WW1 battlefields of the Somme, your group will develop their understanding of what was the worst day in the history of the British Army!

The Battle of the Somme has gone down in history as one of the bloodiest battles ever fought. In terms of casualties, the first day of the battle (1st July 1916) saw the highest number of British casualties in one day.

The Battle of the Somme was intended to be the Big Push to win the war. The key events of the battle will be brought to life for your students with visits to sites including the 1916 Somme Museum in Albert, Lochnagar Crater, Thiepval Memorial to the Missing and Newfoundland Memorial Park.

Short on time? We also offer this as a day trip. Low on numbers? You may like to consider teaming up with your school's English department to make this a cross-curricular trip if they're looking at WW1 poetry.
