Simon Hall inspired our Year 10s

On Thursday 8th June 2017 the BBC’s Crime Correspondent and author Simon Hall came in to give an inspirational talk to all year 10 students about journalism.  It was a pleasure to meet him and we were all delighted that he took the time out of his busy schedule to talk to our students. 

His insights and advice have been really well received by those in attendance and will make a significant difference to their futures. 

Thanks goes to Mr Hall, we really appreciate it!
