Year 7 & 8 Scholastic Essay Presentation Evening

One of the many highlights of the spring term is the Year 7 & 8 Scholastic Essay Presentation Evening. Pupils on our challenge and extension programme were given the topic "Movement" in the autumn term to explore in a direction interested them before writing an essay and presenting a summary of their findings to parents and staff. This year pupils took their research in such diverse directions as

  • The Armenian Genocide
  • The Renaissance: Leonardo da Vinci’s Legacy,  
  • The Movement of the Horse in Art, 
  • How Human Movement is Controlled by the Brain, 
  • Deeds not Words, the Suffragette Movement
  • The Spread of Plague in the 14th Century
  • Brexit

as well as movement related to animals, humans, automobiles and travel.

Congratulations to all the pupils who took part especially for answering questions from the audience with such enthusiasm.
