Peterborough Cathedral Trip

On Tuesday 15th March all year 7 students and the Chapel Choir attended a Religious Education, History, Music and Art curriculum visit to Peterborough Cathedral.  


Students took part in a variety of learning activities including: 


  • The history of the two abbeys, Old Scarlett (The Tutor Gravedigger), dissolution of the civil war and the Victorian cathedral. 
  • The importance of pilgrimage to the Cathedral; why did pilgrims visit Peterborough in medieval times?  
  • The Keys of St Peter, the Cathedral’s Patron Saints. 
  • Maps and Mitres, the role of the Bishop and Cathedral in the Diocese of Peterborough.  
  • Collaborative artwork that will be displayed in the Cathedral in April. 
  • Worship led by Canon Missioner Sarah Brown (students sang the hymns they have been practising in school during this time).
