The History Department aims to give pupils an array of opportunities to get immersed in historical events by visiting interesting sites and seeing memorabilia in reality. In September 2016, pupils had the opportunity to visit the Somme Battlefield and represent LJHS by laying a wreath as part of the Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate, Belgium.
