Our Film Studies pupils are starting a blog on the Westbourne website starting with Alfie Askham in Year 10 who writes about his love of horror films. I would like to encourage any pupils in the school (and parents alike), to share any memories about films. Did a film change your life? Have you met any famous actors? Can you write about your favourite film and why it means so much to you? Please include photographs. If you would like to contribute please email
