Geddington School and the Imperial War Museum


Those of us who attended the May Day celebrations last month, will have been made aware of the WWI project that the school and Boughton House are doing this year.

1917 was the year when most of the casualties amongst the men from Geddington occurred.  This 2017 project, called Echoes & Footsteps, will research how the village was affected by WWI. To aid this project, the school has been awarded a Heritage Lottery Grant.

Jane Rowley, School Business Manager, has said to “As part of the project , we are arranging a visit to the Imperial War Museum in London to look at their WWI exhibitions. The visit is free to anyone in the village who would like to attend. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.”

Jane continued: “The trip will take place on Saturday 16th September and while the times are to be confirmed, it will be for the whole day.”

If you are interested in going on the trip, either call the school on 01536 742201, email or call in and speak to Mrs Rowley or Mrs Bramwell in the school office.
