Below you can watch the virtual presentation some of our Year 12s completed last term as part of their enrichment for History/Philosophy. This will be shown as part of the local authority's 'virtual' events for Holocaust Memorial Day. The students had a 3 minute limit and worked brilliantly to produce this with and  very little staff input!
