Dean Atta Event

From Head of RE, Ms Bansal: “On Wednesday 24th February, all Sixth Form students were invited to attend an online event hosted by the Anne Frank Trust. The event was an interview with Dean Atta – author and poet whose debut novel, The Black Flamingo, won the Stonewall Book Award. He was named as one of the most influential LGBT people in the UK by the Independent on Sunday. Dean’s work often deals with themes of gender, identity, race and growing up – and has appeared on BBC One, BBC Radio 4, BBC World Service, and Channel 4. Along with hearing from Dean Atta himself, students had the opportunity to consider and reflect on the impact of prejudice-based bullying and how they can actively challenge all forms of prejudice and discrimination.
