This week we hosted our annual Brent Holocaust Memorial Day Seminar. We welcomed 120 Year 10 History students from local schools; St Gregory’s RC, Newman Catholic College, Capital City Academy, and Preston Manor High. They were joined by 20 of our Year 10 students as well as a small number of Sixth Formers, who have visited Poland, to help run workshops.

Renee Salt and Ray Hill are our annual guest speakers and once again their talks had a significant impact on all the students present.

Year 12 drama students were fortunate enough to see the play One Man Two Guvnors, a highly amusing comedy which has become an enormous hit ever since opening in the West End a little over a year ago. Students went primarily for the purpose of having a specific play to focus on when writing their examinations later this year, however alongside this academic objective, those who went experienced a real sense of enjoyment.
