The amount of trips and workshops that have taken place this term has been radically reduced due to the pandemic. However, a group of able Year 9s have now begun working with the Old Vic on a year-long project which is exciting for everyone involved.

Drama in the lower years has had to adapt in the way it delivers lessons in a classroom setting and while this has proved successful, I am sure the students as well as the teachers long for the time when they can be in a practical setting.

Years 11 and 13 have been getting on with examinations with both groups having to perform a devised play. They did themselves proud and are ensuring that the pandemic is but a blip rather than anything else.

It is a great shame we cannot invite audiences in to see their efforts, but we will carry on nonetheless.
