An Audience With Queen Elizabeth I at Tutbury Castle

Posted: 13th January 2022

L4 students recently travelled to Tutbury Castle in Staffordshire for an audience with Queen Elizabeth I.

Queen Elizabeth shared stories about her life and times, allowed pupils to hold real Tudor swords and invited them to ask any questions.  The Queen was incredibly impressed with Highclare pupils and their historical knowledge, so much so that L4 pupil Dany was  knighted and declared to be Sir Danny of Lichfield!

The remainder of the afternoon was spent exploring the scenic castle ruins and taking full advantage of having the castle all to ourselves. The visit was both informative and enjoyable and the students returned to school with great memories and historical knowledge.
