Students at a Bridlington School have this week been creating a museum dedicated to the life of an ex-pupil who fought in World War One.

On Friday 12 July from 5pm to 7pm Bridlington School and Sports College will be open to the public who can view the exhibition about TBD Hoff, who went to the school in 1914.

The show of work forms part of a week of activities geared towards developing the student’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural skills (SMSC).

Roy Horobin, head of humanities at Bridlington School, said: “We are going to look back on his experiences at school and are using some letters to find out more about him.

“It is part of Community Week and we are getting students to work more creatively and independently to prepare them for the world of work.”

Mark Ollerenshaw, deputy head teacher, said: The idea of the week is to give the students an opportunity to work outside the normal time table and to work in the community.

“It is not just about academic excellence, a major part of what we do is the holistic approach to make sure the students understand who they are and where they are going.”

This week students have also worked with artists, health professionals and employers from a variety of backgrounds. The week has been reported by the student SMSC Week news team, and the reports - including video footage, will be shown to the student body.
