At James Gillespie’s we have a proud tradition of leading excursions to the World War One Battlefields of Belgium and Northern France. For students this trip deepens understanding of the conflict and allows them to connect with the past.  It is open to S3 History students.


The dates for this year’s trip are Friday 5 May – Friday 12 May 2017 (a change from the original dates of 28 April – Friday 5 May 2017).
