Year 12 International Baccalaureate (IB) pupils headed off through the morning mist to the Historic Dockyard to visit the Mary Rose Museum for a day with a specific Theory of Knowledge focus as part of their diploma studies.

During the day they considered the ‘first-order knowledge question’ “What sank the Mary Rose?” and, from this, ‘second-order knowledge questions’ such as ‘To what extent can knowledge of the past be certain?’

At the end of the day the pupils gave a short presentation on their thoughts and findings to their peers.
