On 23 February at Holy Trinity Church, FHS Music Department presented a moving orchestral performance of composer Laura Rossi’s score written to accompany the famous The Battle of the Somme Film. FHS was proud to be the 55th of 100 live performances taking place nationwide marking the centenary year of the Battle of the Somme. The orchestra was made up of professional musicians, students, parents and staff and they delivered a very powerful performance. The audience, including a number of military veterans, was captivated by the music whilst watching the incredibly moving images of The Battle of the Somme film which, to this day, remains one of the most watched films in British cinema history. Our Year 9 historians displayed their ‘Adopt a Hero’ course work where they have been researching local war veterans.
