The Humanities department has now attracted more than 100 followers on its Twitter feed. The scheme, that was set up in September, has proved useful for staff and students to keep in touch and discuss relevant topics.
Teacher Mr Mark Bidwell said: ‘We have tweeted about natural hazards such as earthquakes that have taken place in the world, and stories that are relevant to our students; case studies and examples to develop further and wider reading. There are a number of students who use it to ask us questions, but more just tend to read what we publish and it tends to generate discussions in lessons. At the moment there have been about 230 different tweets with different stories or points of view on there. We are always looking for new followers and a different point of view.’
