Students take the lead in History Lessons

Students take the lead in History Lessons

Year 8 have celebrated the end of KS3 and prepared themselves  for GCSE History by doing a ‘free choice’ homework on any topic of interest to them. Some students have developed their ideas from this into their own lessons.

Izaak Barraclough led a lesson on First World War weapons, which included a PowerPoint, a quiz, a clip from Blackadder and the chance to have a ‘hands on experience’ with a real First World War rifle. Izaak was supported in his lesson by his father Mr Barraclough who provided us with a wealth of interesting information.

Izaak showed us this amazing picture of his great uncle who died aged 19 at the Battle of the Somme.

UPDATE 22nd October:

All year 9 students should be in school unless they have been told directly to isolate. 


All students in year 7 will be in self isolation until Tuesday 27th October.

Students who travel on the A Star bus will also isolate until Tuesday 27th October

Students who travel on the Borland bus will isolate until 23rd October. They will be in school on 23rd October.

Further details have been sent to affected students via Edulink.

Many thanks,
