We are super excited to be taking C24 out on fieldwork on Thursday, 1st July.
We have arranged to take the whole of Y10 to Shrewsbury Prison, to support our final expedition of the year: Karma Police – have we got justice right?
Shrewsbury Prison was decommissioned in 2013 and now provides an “interactive prison experience” for visitors. It was also recently used as the location for BBC’s drama ‘Time’, which gave a harrowing picture of prison life.
We’re not giving too much away about the activities we’ve got planned for students, but we promise not to leave any of them locked in the cells 😉
We are booked in at the prison at 9.30am meaning that we do have to set off between 6.45am-7am at the latest. If this is a problem for anyone, please let your Crew Leader know as soon as possible.
We will be leaving the prison at approx 1pm, so hope to be back at school between 3.30-4pm, traffic dependant. We will update socials on the day.
Please make sure students wear comfortable clothes and take a jacket as it can become cold in the prison and sensible shoes. Students will also need a packed lunch and sufficient water for the day. Please don’t pack any products containing nuts in packed lunches as we are a nut-free school! If your child is in receipt of free school meals, a packed lunch will be provided for them.
