A Level English Summer Day to Highgate Cemetery

June 5th 2023


As part of their English A Level studies, our Year 12 Literature class took off to Highgate Cemetery to immerse themselves in the Victorian art of... dying. Putting these fantastical stories and structures into real life understanding will inform our students' Gothic literature studies, and Andrew, our very knowledgeable guide took us around the tombs.

Further to this, our course also offers study of Christina Rossetti poetry, and so to put her work and plight into context, we visited the wonderful Rossetti exhibition at Tate Britain. Apart from, perhaps, the Uber boat back home,  it was a very Victorian day out enjoyed by all.
