Courts & PHM Visit

Citizenship Crown Courts visitCitizenship is enhanced by visits and events that support the learning of our students. This terms the GCSE group have been on a visit to the Crown Courts and the People’s History Museum. The visit to the Crown Courts enabled them to explore the how a civil and criminal case is conducted. This supports their learning of the Theme C legal module for the GCSE.

The People’s History museum has a fascinating exhibition looking at how minority groups are represented in Parliament and society at large. Considering the exploration of how people have had their voices heard was a fascinating way to bring much of the GCSE syllabus to light.Citizenship-People's History Museum Visit

Celebrating India fortnight

Over the last two weeks, pupils have been celebrating the language history and culture of India. This has focussed on our KS3 pupils, with a variety of activities taking place, such as samosa making; jewellery making; sitar playing in assembly; learning new Indian languages; talks about Indian politics, Indian history and Indian religions; Indian dancing; Hinglish; playing Kabaddi and cricket. We are very grateful to departments for coordinating such interesting activities and to the pupils themselves, who have led many of them.
