Our History students attended a conference about Henry VII recently, to complement their studies in lessons and provide further insights to help develop their understanding of the topic. One of the students reflected on their experience of the day: “The Historyconference consisted of four speakers who gave their own opinions of King Henry VII based on various questions and sources they had researched. These talks helped us to be able to add to our work in class, in a sense that they gave us further insight into the topic we’re studying, and provided evidence to use in our essay
questions and revision notes. It also offered different view points about the King, who was dubbed as being one of the most boring monarchs in history. We discovered that he suffered from deep paranoia and had an obsession with money, which were interesting facts. Overall it was a very enjoyable day—the talks and the event just seemed to fly by!”
