Year 8 in a Haunted House

On Wednesday 25th May, Year 8 had an awesome day at Praa Sands, Helston, visiting Europe’s most haunted residency – Pengursick Castle.

The 20 students were given a tour of the castle and were told stories of paranormal activity and the history of this very special home. They were allowed to handle Tudor weapons and even get in to a Tudor bed! They were allowed on to the roof of the castle for stunning views where they were told of a young girl that was blown from the roof and still haunts the grounds and they also explored the medieval, award winning garden.

“The students will use the day to inspire their writing linked to the Gothic Horror scheme they are studying in English. The students were praised for their enthusiasm and politeness by the resident, Jay, of Pengursick castle and for their excellent questions.” (Miss Trerise)
