    Entwined and entangled this fairytale begins,

    Settle College is proud to present 'Trippin'. We tell the story about a young couple that gets pressurised into taking drugs.

"The Olympic Torch: Hypocrisy or Hope ?"

    When first conceived, the Olympics were seen as a beacon of peace in a world of conflict. Over the years, violent events and illegal substance abuse have haunted the games to a point where some may consider the original ideal hypocrisy. Our Rock Challenge team looks towards London 2012; is the Olympic Torch today a symbol of hypocrisy or hope?

"Don?t believe what you read in the papers"

    We are here to question, make you stop and think,
    You remember being young, wanting to fit in!
    Hanging around street corners, looking cool always the plan,
    Yes, now we wear hoodies! Does that make us a gang?
    We?re the next generation, what will we become?
    Don?t believe what you read in the papers - don?t judge us all as one!
