As part of Operation Edge, every senior school in Stevenage was invited to take part in a film making competition. The teams of students were tasked to make an educational film which could then be shown to the wider school community as a means of informing students about the dangers and consequences of carrying a knife.

A panel of judges, which included Film Composer David Arnold and actor Kevin Whatley, viewed and scored each film and the winners were announced at the end of the red carpet screening event on the 17th January.

The team from Marriotts School supplied the winning entry, which the judges described as a thought provoking and dramatic film, cinematically shot with well introduced characters and a powerful ending – capturing the impact and unintended consequences of carrying a knife.
