Year 9 Suffragette Rally at Beamish

Updated: Nov 2, 2023

As part of the annual English-History Trip, Year 9 visited Beamish and put themselves into the shoes of women that fought for their right to vote in the early 20th Century. Students worked incredibly hard in lessons leading up to the trip, exploring the perspectives of their assigned characters and crafting speeches to deliver in a class debate.

During their visit they took part in a march down Beamish High Street: dressed in their roles and chanting their decided mottos.

All class teachers were very proud of their enthusiasm and the curiosity they exhibited while exploring the town. They were keen to ask questions to further develop their historical knowledge of the time.

Well done Year 9!
