C26 experience the ‘Golden Age’ at Burghley House

Last week year 11 went to Burghley House; the house built for William Cecil who was Queen Elizabeth I Secretary of State and chief political advisor. Students got to see first hand the lavish lifestyles of the nobility and the queens ‘favourites’. In addition to this, students also had a lecture by an expert on William Cecil, his family and how he got to such a prominent position. The visit coincides with the topic studied this term: ‘The Elizabethans 1580-1603’.
The staff at Burghley House commented on how our students showed genuine interest and asked some great questions, they told me that XP/E were one of the best schools they’d ever had to visit!
