Year 7s captured in castle

Leave a comment

As part of their Key Stage 3 history course, Year 7 visited Framlingham and Orford Castle during the summer term. These two contrasting Suffolk castles gave pupils a chance to consider methods of attack and defence, as well as explore the medieval living conditions.

Each of these castles is architecturally intriguing. Framlingham boasts a great curtain wall with thirteen towers and Orford’s keep is one of very few castle interiors to retain all original rooms and corridors.

Fitness levels were certainly put to the test with so many stairs to climb and some of the girls discovered that it always pays to be on the right side of the prison bars!
