We’d like to say a huge thank you to all our 4th Form families who have put so much time and energy into completing research this term. Many of you have got in touch to let us know you’ll be working on your projects over the break (when you’re not tucking into Christmas treats, of course!). To support this research, we thought we’d share a few more tips..

The College’s Second World War Roll of Honour lists 170 former pupils and teachers killed on active service during the conflict. We are asking every family with a 4th Form pupil to research one name from the Roll of Honour, which will then become part of a book to be published in 2019.
