Ten students from Year 10 took part in, and won, an inter-school debating challenge on the 20th January at Cambridge University. The debate was part of a challenge day event that has been designed to offer students a taster of Higher Education and University. Students experienced taster lectures and met undergraduate students studying different subjects. The students thoroughly enjoyed the day and particularly the debate on ‘Whether students should only go to university if they are going to work in the field they have graduated in’. Featherstone were highly praised for their views and the ideas they put forward.
Eighteen dance students from Featherstone High are continuing to work hard on the Royal Ballet Project each week with their final performance to be showcased in Covent Garden. While The Royal Ballet School students specialise in ballet, the Featherstone pupils boast a range of dance styles from Street to classical Indian dance. They will be performing on two nights (12th and 13th February). We wish them all the best for their big performance.
