On Friday 7 February 2014 a group of Year 9 students embarked on a journey many thousands of soldiers had made 100 years before. Setting off in the early hours of the morning they made their way to Belgium to visit the battlefields of the First World War. They visited several cemeteries and memorials such as Tyne Cot, Langemark and the Menin Gate, as well as the excavated trenches at Sanctuary Wood. These places really demonstrated the destruction and loss of life caused by the war. Year 9 were a testament to Blenheim, and gained a lot from the experience.
