Awesome Austen

27 September 2017

Year 13 English students immersed themselves in the world of Jane Austen on Tuesday, with a visit to the author's House Museum in Chawton, Hampshire.

Two students are seen here in front of Jane Austen's writing table.

The day was tailored to the study of their set novel, Emma and saw the girls handle some artefacts which were referred to in the text.

After visiting the cottage where Jane Austen lived, the students then walked to the "Great House" nearby which was owned by her brother.
