MHS students pitch the BBC

What story do you think the BBC should be reporting on and sharing with our audience?
'The Pitch' is a chance for young people to suggest an idea for a story or report to BBC News, and on Thursday 16th March 20 students experienced a day of news reporting. By 4pm on the day they had compiled a BBC News School Report. To see how they did follow the link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/schoolreport

Holocaust Lecture
On Monday 6th February 22 year 10 and 11 GCSE historians attended a lecture delivered by Professor Christopher Szejnmann from Loughborough University at the South Wigston High School.
Professor Szejnmnan presented an outstanding, thought provoking talk on the sensitive, but fascinating topic of The Holocaust. Years of expertise oozed through his rhetoric and his ability to engage with the audience was masterful.

All students from MHS were exemplary, Cian Linnett, James Lacey and Mohamed Hassouna posed excellent questions to Professor Szejnmann who was certainly made to think on his feet and dig deep into the vaults of his knowledge.

A truly enjoyable experience which inspired and motivated our GCSE historians to broaden their view of history outside of the classroom and get a real flavour of the subject at university level.
Mr S Johnson - Teacher of History

Our Trip to Iceland
On the 12th February, 40 students and 5 teachers set off on a 5 day Geography adventure to Iceland - The Land of Fire and Ice.

An amazing time was had by all as we marvelled at volcanoes, swam in geothermally heated waters, watched erupting geysers and got close to thundering waterfalls.

Glacier hiking and lava tube caving were certainly highlights of the trip and will be remembered by many for a long time to come.

Students have come away with fantastic memories which they have shared with family and friends.
Mr S Williams - Teacher of Geography
