The recent superb late Autumn days have enabled some classes to be held in magical settings seemingly far from school. 

One Lower Sixth history class visited the College troutpond to study the legend of the Death of King Arthur: the pond, with the morning mist rising, were reminiscent of the mere into which the sword Excalibur was thrown by Sir Bedivere. 

One Shell class travelled further still, into the gorgeous fairy-tale glades of Savernake, where they analyzed 'Woods' by Louis MacNeice (an Old Marlburian).
