War Veteran Visits Ellington and HeresonMr Thomson 1

We had a visit by Mr Alastair Thomson on Friday (28/03). Mr Thomson served in the SAS through the Cold War and spoke to our Year 12 students about his experience in the Malayan Emergency, a guerrilla war fought between the forces of the Commonwealth and the Malayan National Liberation Army (MNLA). Mr Thomson also discussed his memories of Cold War Berlin and the dangers of being a paratrooper. It is hoped Mr Thomson will visit again later in the year to complement students studies on the Cold War for their IBCC qualification.

We are very thankful to Mr Thomson for sharing his fascinating insight into this recent chapter of history and value these opportunities of oral accounts.

History - Somme Trip 2014

On the eve of the Centenary of the First World War Year 9 students travelled down to the Somme area of France to carry out field work investigation into conditions and tactics used in trench warfare.

The first day of the Battle of the Somme was known as the darkest day in the history of the British Army. At the end of July 1st 1916 over 60,000 soldiers were killed or injured. To examine this event students visited the Ulster memorial, one of the few sites where battle objectives were briefly met with the short term capture of the Swaben redoubt. Here we were able to investigate excavated trenches.
