Following a presentation on the 18th November 2016, Deal Learning Alliance decided that the Royal Marines Heritage Trail (RMHT) was the perfect opportunity for their schools to work in close collaboration with the community, identifying many benefits for their pupils.

The Deal Learning Alliance consider that the RMHT is something that not only is a physical link between the streets and schools in Deal but is also an emotional link celebrating the pupils’ heritage in the area. Discovering the history on our doorstep has genuine cross-curriculum benefit and always invigorates the pupils by helping them understand some of the unique assets of their locality.
