Students at The Peele Community College at Long Sutton have been recognised by the highest power in the land for their thoughts on the changing History National Curriculum and why they think pupils should continue to learn about the Holocaust.

Students of 9X1 studied the Holocaust and, recognising what an important event in history it was, wanted to convey their learning to someone in a position of power.

They wrote to the Prime Minister showing their understanding of the events leading up to the Holocaust and the atrocities that took place.

They also expressed their thoughts on the changing curriculum and described the lessons learnt from their studies. In response, they received a letter from 10 Downing Street saying their letters would be passed to the Cabinet Office.
