In History this term, the Year 9 girls have been studying the industrial revolution from 1800's to the present day.
As part of this topic they have identified the importance of the development of the canal network throughout Great Britain. Here, in Gloucester, there is a wealth of heritage in the dockland area where the end of the Gloucester and Sharpness canal is located.
We will be visiting Gloucester Docks on Monday 23 May from 13:45 to the end of school time. They will have the opportunity to see and discover what life was like in the industrial revolution. There is a wealth of information about the changes the area has gone through and the diversity of the people and nationalities involved in that heritage. This will give the girls an amazing insight into the importance of Gloucester as a major trade route in the UK.
