The Arson Project

We were asked by North Oxfordshire Academy and Banbury police to help address the problem of arson, which was prevalent on the housing estate next to the school. We helped selected students make a short film about the issue, which they presented to the rest of the school. That summer the Police reported a 63% reduction in arson.
