Key Stage 5 | Subject: History | Topics: Tudors | Session Type: Depth study
Explore and deconstruct the key factors that contributed to Thomas Wolsey’s spectacular fall from the highest echelons of power.
In this session, students will use the remaining traces of Wolsey’s palace and contemporary opinions of Wolsey to analyse how the Cardinal presented himself and his position and his relationship with King Henry VIII.
Through the palace he created, students will evaluate why Wolsey was able to rise so high, and why ultimately he fell from grace.
