The Year 12 and Year 13 historians went to the International History Conference exploring the centenary year of the start of World War One. Hosted by the University of Bucharest with Cambridge University and the Howard Johnson Hotel, on the 9th and 10th of November, it was an exciting and inspiring introduction to the world of academic History for them. Over the course of the two day conference they took part in key note lectures from some of the top Professors from the UK, Germany, Italy, Greece, Austria, and of course Romania. The students also participated in seminar panels on such aspects as the experiences and origins of the war. Our students in particular were marked out for praise by the organisers and the academics at the end of conference for both their incisive questions and their mature contributions- so well done to all our young historians!
