Medieval Merriment at the Verulam Festival

The weather was kind to us and all the 400 guests attending our first Medieval Festival last Sunday. Thanks to all of you for supporting the event – and of course to the numerous volunteers from the school and PTA who worked with James Silcox from Reach the Core to deliver a highly educational and entertaining day out.

There were a lot of happy and tired people leaving the school on Sunday afternoon after several hours watching battle re-enactments and taking part in numerous activities including axe throwing, archery and jousting.

Several people told us that they had never spent so long at a school event and were amazed by how much they had learnt while testing out some new found skills. Guest appearances in costume by Mr Pettitt and Mr Fletcher were also highlights of the day!

We hope to see you again around the same time next year!
