STUDENTS from a Fareham school have spent time visiting Berlin.

A group from The Henry Cort Community College went to The Reichstag Dome, the seat of Germany’s parliament and one of the most famous landmarks in Berlin.

Situated near the Brandenburg Gate, the iconic building was constructed between 1884 and 1894.

The students visited Sachsenhausen Memorial, a museum on the grounds of a former concentration camp.

They went to the state-of-the-art Olympic Stadium, an arena with capacity for more than 74,000 spectators.

The students also paid a visit to the Berlin Wall memorial, Bernauer Strasse.

Phil Munday, pictured, is executive principal at the school. He said it was a successful trip.

‘Enrichment is very strong at The Henry Cort Community College,’ he said.

‘We encourage our students to broaden their knowledge of different cultures, recognise the value of studying history and appreciate the world around them.’
