Year 11 recently took part in unique new workshops that challenged them to consider how they might respond to a significant terrorist attack if they were the leadership of their country.

The workshop built key critical thinking skills, encouraged a greater understanding of world events, fostered team working skills, public speaking confidence and helped to promote fundamental British Values.

Pupils took their turns to present plans for dealing with a terrorist threat given their country’s capabilities, being challenged on their reasoning and facilitating the opportunity to support difficult choices.

Our pupils engaged enthusiastically and we can look forward to seeing some of them progress into successful political careers in the future.
