    The Big Activities Sign-up takes place
    12th September 2012

    Students flooded into the school hall on Wednesday this week to sign up for the new Activities programme. The response was absolutely fantastic and most of places on many the activities have been filled. I am investigating further possibilities and whether it is possible to engage additional providers where activities were oversubscribed. In the interim the remaining places will be advertised to students through the notices given out during period 1 each day. We are looking forward to next Wednesday when the activities start. Please remind your child to bring kit or a change of clothes as appropriate to the activity that they have signed up for. Read More

  • Visit to the Globe Theatre for Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew

    Visit to the Globe Theatre for Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew
    7th September 2012

    On the 7th September 2012 36 students studying A Level English Literature and English Literature and Language in year 12 and in year 13 visited the Globe Theatre in London to watch a performance of William Shakespeare’s The Taming of The Shrew. It was a good performance and the students enjoyed the play and the amazingly authentic setting of the Globe. It was a revelation to find that Shakespeare could be so funny and entertaining and those of us who had to stand throughout forgot to moan about our aching feet as we became enchanted by the brilliant performances of the cast, especially Samantha Spiro (known for her stage and T.V. work such as “Grandma’s House”) as the Shrew, Katherina. Also it was nice to look at the various sights of London such as the Globe Theatre, The Gherkin, The Houses of Parliament and more. It was a good day, a good experience for all and a great way to start our A Level experience. Luke Smith Read More
