Black History Month talk

We were very pleased to welcome speaker Paul Crooks into our school for Black History Month this week. 

Paul spent 13 years tracing his family history back six generations, from London to the West African coast, gaining national recognition for his work. He is the author of the 2002 novel Ancestors (based on the true story of his own ancestors) and he appeared on Who Do You Think You Are? (Moira Stuart) as an expert in African-Caribbean genealogy. His second book, A Tree Without Roots, is the seminal guide to tracing African, British and Asian-Caribbean ancestry.

Many thanks to Paul for giving a very informative and engaging talk to each of our year groups.
