Earlier this month, Dr Crees and Mrs Selvey took a group of Upper Sixth English Literature pupils to Penzance for the afternoon to enhance their study of the Romantic Poets.
The students had a tour of the town, on the trail of Humphry Davey, reading his fascinating letter from Wordsworth, before heading to the Morrab Library. Here, Dr Crees showed the group a genuine letter by William Wordsworth, forgotten for years and rediscovered by Dr Crees only relatively recently. It contained many ideas on education explored in The Lyrical Ballads, their A2 set text. In essence – Delight and liberty, the simple creed of childhood.
