Sudbury students have been on a school trip to see the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum.
Ormiston Sudbury Academy took 15 students to stay at Sorrento, near Naples, and view the ruins as well as climb up Vesuvius.
The trip was led by director of humanities David Grocott, who said: “This was an ambitious trip but hugely successful. We believe in giving all of our students a challenging, world-class education and I think this was an example of precisely that.”
In addition to visiting Herculaneum, Pompeii and Vesuvius the group was able to visit the renowned archaeological museum in Naples.
The students joining Mr Grocott on the trip were GCSE ancient history and A-level archaeology students.
A-level student Connor McQuie said: “This really helped to bring our studies to life. It was an excellent trip that I will remember for the rest of my life.”
