History Club Marks the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings
Creative members of Cornwallis Academy’s History club used their imagination to bring History to life this term.
To mark the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings, the students and staff re-enacted the 1066 war on the banks of the academy.
The group arrived ready for battle, wearing armour they had designed and created themselves, including shields, swords and helmets.
Head of History, Mr Clapp, said: “The students made a tremendous effort in their preparation for the re-enactment.
“Their shields and armour looked fantastic for the staged battle, which was a great performance. Well done to all!”
