Pope's Grotto Trip

Our Year 8 boys were very lucky to enjoy a personal tour of Alexander Pope’s Grotto in Twickenham last week. The boys have been studying the poetry of Pope in particular “An Essay on Criticism.” At dusk they had an introduction to Pope, his life and the area where he lived and were then free to explore the Grotto and ask questions of the professors who are currently restoring the grotto. Matthew “had low expectations of a cave in Twickenham …… but was pleasantly surprised, it was a fantastic trip” and he is currently campaigning to return with his family once the restoration is complete!
