Our trip to Harvington Hall

On Wednesday, Class 5 had a fabulous trip to Harvington Hall, a Tudor house which famously has the most amount of priest hides in England. We all had a great time delving in to the history of the manor, learning about who lived there and how the house has developed over time. We were all particularly amazed at finding out where all the priest hides were and gave huge gasps when they were revealed (especially under the stairs)

In the afternoon we had great fun learning about all the different jobs there were around the house and had a giggle when we got to dress up and do some traditional Tudor dancing!

This amazing experience has inspired some brilliant writing within our class – we were eager to think about what it would have been like to be a Catholic priest in hiding in one of these places in Harvington Hall and have been creating our own historical stories.
