Students from Barnsley Sixth Form College visited the University of Hull for a Master Class in English Literature and to take the Philip Larkin Trail.

The group of 25 A Level students had a full day visiting the university and attending a lecture before taking the tour of poet Larkin’s Hull, focusing on the areas where he spent most of his time and the places he got his inspiration.

Student Harriet Grant, of Rosehill Drive, Dodworth, said: “We have been studying Larkin’s poems in class so the Trail was really enjoyable and insightful. It was also great to see the university environment.”

Student Emma Shepherd of Warren Hill, Kimberworth, added: “We have just started coursework on Larkin so it was really relevant to our studies to visit the university, take the Trail and get points and tips from the university Doctors in the Master Class.”
