World War 1

20th March 2020

Year 7 have been looking at the work of World War I poet, Wilfred Owen. After designing their own propaganda posters, we read Owen’s work, ‘Dulce Et Decorum Est’ and compared the two images of war. We discovered that the true image was much more petrifying than the propaganda led people to believe. We then used the smoke machine in the theatre to try and reenact the poem, with Arthur as the poor soldier who could not fit his gas mask in time.

We are expanding to GCSE!

Parents have told us they need a quality senior school alternative, so from September 2021, pupils already at Copthorne or joining in Year 7 will be able to stay with us to Year 11. Our first GCSE exams will take place in 2026. 

Join us at our next Virtual Open Morning or read about our expansion to find out more.
