Year Nine pupils embarked on their OCR Poetry Anthology for GCSE with, ‘Anthem For Doomed Youth’, by Wilfred Owen. 

In order to enhance their experience and understanding some WW1 artefacts were brought in to class by the English Department.  By far the most poignant was a Field Message Book from the Western Front outlining the casualties that day.  The names and handwritten nature of the book made an emotive impression on the students.
