National Schools Film Week 17 – 21 October 2011
18 Oct 2011
The English and Drama department have once again taken part in the National Schools Film Week annual event, organised by Film Education.
A group of Sixth Formers were privileged to see a preview of the film The Help, directed by Tate Taylor . As part of our literature coursework on Tennessee Williams (AS level) and Alice Walker (A2 level), the film made a powerful impact on our understanding of the civil rights struggle in America and our appreciation of racial tension in the Deep South.
