A number of Year 10 students took part in a trip to Whitby recently for a Gothic Literature Day, lead by Hull University. We looked around Whitby museum and did some creative writing about items we found in in the museum. We then did the ‘Sleepwalk Walk’ from Dracula to show the students how Stoker had been influenced in his writing by Whitby. We ended up at the Abbey, where students filmed their stories with a Gothic background. It was a great day, with great weather and we learned new things.
