A Religious Studies field trip to the battlefields of the Western Front offers an unrivalled opportunity to provoke thought and to generate student debate on some of the core topics in the RS syllabus. Our purpose designed itinerary includes a framework of sites that will give any debate a historical context, but we never lose sight of the main RS focus.
Using case studies from the Chaplains Department, the Medical Services and some of key commanders we will trigger debate on a range of topics. Starting with the concept of a Just War we can progress through a previously agreed series of visits highlighting topics such as Conscientious Objectors, Laws of Armed Conflict, Medical Personnel in War, Religion (Multi) on the Battlefield, Non-Combatants in War, Remembrance and Commemoration. The content and sequence of the itinerary can be adjusted to suit your learning outcomes and will be delivered by an expert Galloway Historian.
With such a variety of attractions, from heritage to art, from theatre to fun, London is the ideal choice for any group day out. We have access to education rates for a wide range of West End shows and attractions and can help with all elements of the planning to ensure your day trip is well organised and enjoyable.

As war provided a constant stream of wounded, new challenges were met with new solutions and the world of medicine was refined into the study we know now.
