Year 9 students star on ITV News

The Corsham School was approached by ITN for permission to film and interview year 9 students in their History lesson and on their field trip to Ypres in Belgium. We met up with the ITN reporter and film crew at Tyne Cot cemetery in Ypres and again later that evening at the Menin Gate. The film and interviews were to accompany both the local and national news coverage of  the Prime Minister’s announcement to direct funding towards trips to the WW1 battlefields. The students involved in the lesson and the trip were a real credit to the school, in fact the quality of their responses was so good, that ITN cut the Prime Minister’s announcement down to make more room for out students voices! Well done year 9, you have yet again done the school proud.
