On Wednesday 2nd May, members of the English department took 50 year 9 students overnight to the home of the Bard, Stratford Upon Avon, to watch an amazing performance of Romeo & Juliet and to visit Shakespeare houses, including Shakespeare’s Birthplace and Ann Hathaway’s Cottage. The students were amazing and a credit to the school throughout the two day trip. We were particularly proud to see them in their finery for our evening in the theatre where we had some glamorous dresses and even bow ties! We were also so proud that the students, when selected by actors in the gardens of William Shakespeare’s Birthplace, got up and carried out an impromptu performance of a Midsummer Night’s Dream. They were incredible! Please congratulate any students you know that went on the trip for their commendable behaviour and attitude throughout.
