King’s Battlefields Trip 2021

With the positive news of a COVID vaccine on the horizon we are hopeful that our 2021 Battlefields trip scheduled for 11 – 15 July may be able to take place.

All being well we will be heading to the Champagne region of France. The Marne, the Aisne and the Chemin des Dames may not be so familiar to British ears as the Somme or Passchendaele but the battles there were just as bloody, and, while the fighting often involved the French and the Germans, some of the blood that was spilt was British – including that of former pupils. Poignant remembrance of Old King’s Scholars at graves and memorials, and tours of the battlefields, trenches, museums of the area will be led by Seb Neal, history teacher and battlefield expert.

Several people have already informed us that they would like to join the trip. If you’re interested please register online at
