Autumn Leaves Concert

The Music Department were delighted to welcome family and friends to our recent ‘Autumn Leaves’ concert. This had been the first opportunity to perform live music in front of an audience since December 2019 and as expected the performers rose to the occasion. The programme included performers from Year 11, 12 and 13 with a wide-ranging repertoire, each showing that excellence has no limits. Thank you to all of those involved.

Royal Opera House Trip

The Library teamed up with the Music Department to take a group of students to see The Monstrous Child at The Royal Opera House. This trip allowed students to explore the link between literature music and sparked plenty of discussion. Thank you to the students for being so wonderfully behaved and thank you for the members of staff who made this trip a success.

Drama Trip ‘The Cane’

The Drama department took GCSE and A-Level students to see ‘The Cane’ at the Royal Court Theatre. An exciting new play by Mark Ravenhill that explored how teachers of the past had previously used the cane on students and the lasting effects this had upon them. Students were captivated by the outstanding performances by the three actors and the ever impressive and extending set used.
