In April 1994 St Clement Danes School was incorporated as a grant-maintained school. It was a mixed ability, co-educational school based in Chenies Road, Chorleywood. During this period students recalled the Great Storm of 1987 which caused widespread destruction across the UK. Crime detection using DNA also made a major breakthrough with the first man convicted of murder in 1988 using DNA fingerprint evidence.
Margaret Thatcher resigned as Prime Minister in 1990 – the same year that the internet was invented. In 1991 Britain joined the USA in the war against Iraq and in 1994 the ‘Chunnel’ opened between Britain and France.
