A Titanic trip - posted 2nd Apr

Last week the Drama Department announced a trip to The Liverpool Maritime Museum to see the Titanic Exhibition. This was a very popular trip and we had the whole of year 8 rushing to get their permission slips in - due to the demand we were able to run a second trip, as we didn't want to disappoint the many students who wanted to attend.

Being an informed and active citizen is empowering and can benefit our whole society. The more people who participate in our democracy, the fairer and more equal it will be. That’s why we’ve launched the Young Citizens Democracy Ambassadors Programme with a group of our Year 10 students.

Our students receive an initial training session during which they learn a bit more about democracy, and interesting ways in which to share what they have learnt, they will then take part in some peer to peer activity: such as running a session for the rest of the group, or creating and sharing a short video or quiz with peers online.
