Highbridge sixth formers meet TV actresses during student forum

Sixth form students from Highbridge's King Alfred School who took part in a Somerset Student Forum last week got a surprise when they met two TV stars at the event!

The group were attending a forum for students at Somerset College of Arts and Technology in Taunton.

A wide range of issues relating to student life were discussed, with questions being put to a panel of professionals dealing with young people.

They also heard from Kathryn and Megan Prescott from the E4 TV series Skins and then met the duo afterwards, as pictured here.

Jonathan Gaskell, Head of Sixth Form at King Alfred School, told "Questions put to the panel were intelligent and demanding and focused on how Somerset services could better provide for post-16 aged students."

"The highlight, however, was hearing how Kathryn and Megan viewed their controversial roles in Skins and what they felt about media portrayal of young people."

"King Alfred School's students played a key role in the discussions and were thoroughly deserving of their photo opportunity with Kathryn and Megan!"
