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.

“… thoroughly enjoyed it. I was impressed by their dramatic skills. I’ve loved all the drama trips and look forward to the next one.”

Superzone Planning!

Superzones are an area of 400m radius around secondary schools in which action is taken to protect young people’s health and encourage healthy behaviours through targeted intervention. Chace have been chosen to be a pilot school for this initiative.

The student council welcomed Ailbhe and Marghe from the Enfield Public Health department and Mr. Bruton, the Headteacher for a working lunch this week to discuss this issue. The student council shared their priorities and gave valuable feedback about ways in which the initiative could be implemented.
