Written by Professor Becky Parker

On Tuesday 18th July, 170 Year 7 students took part in a cross-curricular approach towards highlighting the issues of biodiversity loss, the impact it may have on their future and the idea of working together to create something better. As part of the Encompass project, through the combined efforts of the music, drama, computing and science departments, they recorded and filmed the track “Heroes & Dreamers”.

It was an amazing day; the students were fantastic, and we hope you agree that they have created something truly special!
