Year 12 History

Y12 conducted a vigorous debate proposing that the Progressive Era was unable to reverse the worst excesses of the Gilded Age in American history. After passionate speeches and rebuttals from both sides the two teams were evenly matched. Only some very challenging questioning from the Proposition side at the very end was able to produce a clear winner. Who knew 19th-20th Century American Social history could be so bloodthirsty?

French theatre for pupils

On the 20th February, as part of activities week, KS3 pupils enjoyed watching the play "Molière" performed in French by French actors. It was a very enjoyable moment where the audience got a chance to go on stage, dress up and have a small part in the play.
