Roman Festival 2021

Once again we are pleased to be running our ever popular Roman Festival in September. Ideal for Key Stage 2, pupils have the chance to take part in three workshops, as well as meeting our very own Roman Soldier!! The main activities include:

- Alban and the Romans: learning about everyday life in the Roman town of Verulamium, including the life of St Alban 

- Roman Food: creating and sampling some wonderful delicacies using ancient Roman recipes

- Artefact Blanket Dig: going back in time from the present, via the Saxons to the Roman period, and having the opportunity to explore and handle various artefacts on the way

Booking is now open, so to find out more please contact us on [email protected] or on 01727890212.

If you are unable to make the September festival then do not worry, we will be running the event once again in January 2022. 

Year 6 Pilgrimage & Transition Days 

Our Year 6 Pilgrimage & Transition Days, which take place every year in June and July. These days give pupils making the transition from Primary to Secondary school the perfect opportunity to reflect on their educational journey so far, as well as looking ahead to what the future holds. Following the route of pilgrims through the ages, the pupils will walk from the site of Roman Verulamium to the Cathedral, learning the story of St Alban as they go, before finishing their journey at the Shrine. They will then take part in a reflective workshop before completing their day with a fun filled Silent Disco!

To find out more information about the Year 6 Pilgrimage & Transition Days for 2022, please get in touch. 

What a lovely day! Thank you to the Education Team for delivering the activities perfectly.
