Our team of students attended the Great Lancashire Debate final at County Hall Preston. We are delighted to announce that the team came away with second place overall and West Lancashire area winners!  The students delivered a powerful speech on the required provision for individuals with SEND in Lancashire and made some excellent suggestions on how this can be improved. 

The judges were impressed with their presentation, maturity and passion for the topic that is close to their hearts. The students received excellent feedback including "how they referred to 'we' and 'our friends' so much - clearly young people with compassion for others". 

All of us at Hope High are very proud of our students performance and we have been invited to another meeting on the topic of inclusion in Lancashire! 

A huge well done! The future is looking bright.
