Guest speaker Sally Phillips

On Wednesday, we were joined by guest speaker Sally Phillips, of Bridget Jones, Alan Partridge, Miranda and Smack the Pony fame. Driven by the experience of raising her son Olly, who has Down's syndrome, Sally has made the documentary A World Without Down's Syndrome?

The documentary explores the science and thinking around the proposed new screening test for Down's syndrome and its possible availability on the NHS.  Sally spoke to sixth form students about the documentary, and showed some clips of the film, before taking questions from the audience.
