He may be used to testing students’ knowledge on University Challenge, but pupils at School 21 showed Jeremy Paxman they were all clued up when it came to the First World War.
The television presenter visited the Pitchford Street school to view the result of the year 8 students’ project.
Empty classrooms were converted into a recreation of the trenches, while some students performed monologues and two others had created an accompanying website and app.
The exhibition was the culmination of a term’s work in a number of different subjects, including art and English.
History teacher Joe Pardee said: “The pupils have worked really hard on the project.
“It was great to have Jeremy Paxman in to see what they had been doing.”
The school aims to keep the exhibition open for the rest of the year and invite primary schools in to view it.
