The History Society met today, with members from Year 7 upwards. Edward Foxhall (Year 12) led a talk on the evacuation of Dunkirk. Pupils were asked to watch clips of the film before hand and the discussion centred on the history of the events. Edward then answered questions on the topic. The whole meeting was shared on Microsoft Teams and recorded for all pupils who missed it.
Next week the History Society joins with Feminism Society to discuss the Suffragettes and debate their impact in history. In preparation for this debate, pupils may wish to read the following article from Dr Fern Riddell https://www.historytoday.com/history-matters/sanitising-suffragettes.
All pupils are welcome to join us on Tuesday 5th May at 1pm. To do so they should contact a member of the History department for the Team code.
