Hampshire Fire & Rescue Service On the 9th March, Year 7 and 8 students took part in a Fire Safety session delivered by Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service. During the session they were informed not only on how to prevent fires at home, but also to consider a fire escape plan. Afterwards they were lucky enough to explore a Fire Engine and even got took try out the fire hose!
