Year 11 iWeek

Year 11 have been focusing on the real world during this iWeek and they are tackling some heavy topics such as:

  • Different models for society and the tensions between them
  • Migration and immigration
  • Extremism and fundamentalism
  • Cultural practises and the law – forced marriage and honour based violence
  • Financial literacy
  • Pornography vs real sex

So far there have been some excellent discussions and debates about these topics, with all pupils understanding the serious nature of the work.

Today we had a guest speaker, BBC journalist, Poonam Taneja. On Friday there will be a return visit by Janine Webber, a holocaust survivor.
