As part of our programme of events to celebrate our 150th Anniversary in 2019, we are organising our first ever Georgian Family Battlefields Trip to remember and honour the OGs who fell in the War. This all inclusive trip will offer Georgians a unique insight into the men from our school who lost their lives during the Great War, starting at Ypres in Flanders and then on to Arras before travelling down The Somme, including The Thiepval Memorial where you will learn about George Gradwell (OG 1915 and Head Boy) whose name is inscribed on the largest British War Memorial in the world.
The estimated inclusive price of the trip is £600 per person. A confirmed package price will follow. The package will include:
