Our Choice

Why does every single man
Have to go and fight in Vietnam
Leave their lives, so fun
To spend them with a gun.

Why can’t we use our voice?
Why can’t we have our own choice?
Can we not have just paused?
And realised what we have caused.

What’s our money going for?
A silly and pathetic war
Every child will have to wait
To see how long their dad with take
To come home and meet their new mates.

Every man should have their say
On what they do day by day
It’s not our fault
That you have caused this assault.
So please let us use our voice
In a world where we have our choice.

By Thomas S, Year 9

Year 10 History

The Year 10 History classes have been studying Elizabethan England this term as part of their GCSE History course. In preparation for this part of the course students were asked to complete some research on Elizabeth I as home study; Debora B., produced this excellent piece of work as an introduction to the unit.











Year 11 History

Revision isn’t always the most fun activity to do but Year 11 have been trying to add some interest by playing ‘Guess Who’ to help them remember key people from their course ready for their exams in a few weeks time.
