At Malton School we strive to enable children to develop their potential to the full and to grow into mature and confident young people who are prepared for the challenges, opportunities and responsibilities of adult life. To support this development Malton School offers a caring environment within which students can share in a wide range of academic, sporting, aesthetic, spiritual and social experiences.

On 23 April, thirty Year 10 students went to see Northern Broadsides perform a powerful version of King Lear at the Stephen Joseph theatre in Scarborough. Using a minimalistic set, the production was lively and powerful, with some strong performances. A number of students seated on the front row had a particularly vivid experience of the play and for some it was their first experience of live theatre in the round. Despite a rather dramatic and unexpected interlude to the second half of the show, it was an enjoyable event.

Hustings at Malton School
It was a chance to get a first look at the candidates, quiz them and form their own opinions about who they would vote for, for the very first time, on May 7th.
A three-line whip for all sixth formers to attend, even those not yet 18, unsurprisingly resulted in an excellent turnout for the general election hustings at Malton School yesterday afternoon.
With over 100 students in the audience, all 7 prospective parliamentary candidates on the stage and a list of students ready to fire questions, Emily Metcalfe, in Year 13 and in the chair, had her work cut out to make sure that the audience had a say and no candidate talked for too long.
Questions from the floor covered a broad range of issues: close to home fracking in Kirby Misperton and jobs in Ryedale; matters of importance to young people: tuition fees, student loans and apprenticeships; and the bigger political questions, including tactical voting, the EU referendum and what it means to be British.
Ellie Thompson in Year 13 said: "I enjoyed the event, more than I thought I would. The candidate that made a real impression on me was John Clark. He is a people person and spoke to us like he was one of us. I liked what he had to say and how he said it."
Will Grice, also in Year 13, added: "I thought Alan Avery made a good impression. He gave his opinions in a straightforward, clear way. I Like that, but he did interrupt a bit. I liked what he said about what his party would do for young people."
Gary Howard, Government and Politics teacher said: "I'm delighted with how the event ran. There was a good humoured and intelligent presentation of ideas. Emily chaired it very well and the students relaxed and got involved. They asked some topical and thoughtful questions, really dispelling the notion that young people have little to say about politics. I'm grateful to all the candidates for coming along."
A show of hands at the beginning and the end showed that all those who can vote, will be voting on May 7th. And from what they heard during the afternoon, at least two students had their minds changed about their voting intentions.
