Year 6 visit Oxford Castle

3 February 2016

On Monday 1st February, Year 6 visited Oxford Castle. During a guided tour of the castle, the girls learned about its long and interesting history. This spans from Saxon to more recent times when the castle was used as a prison, eventually shutting down in 1996.

In addition, Year 6 enjoyed a workshop inspired by a local early 20th century gentle woman – Mary Blandy. Mary Blandy was accused of murdering her father as requested by her love William Cransten. Mary was held at Oxford Castle and eventually hung for her crime. Year 6 debated the facts and decided for them-selves whether she was innocent or guilty as charged!
