Each Summer, after working hard for their public and school examinations, all our pupils go on an Activity Week in different European countries according to year group. Last June Year 12 visited Poland.

Today, as we mark Holocaust Memorial Day, one of our pupils shares how they were moved by the experience of spending a day at the site of the Auschwitz concentration camp.

'This was a sobering and powerful time for us to reflect on our world history - whilst also remembering the stories of so many men and women like us. We were all impacted in different ways but found the experience profoundly important.'

Clémence, Year 12
