Just to let you know that our students delivered a fantastic performance at the Drama competition today and really held their own against much older students. Although we didn’t win, we were commended for our script and the message it delivered.
Thanks for everyone who came along to support – it’s much appreciated.
Please give the kids a pat on the back if you see them:

I wanted to share some good news – if you see Rhys Lanahan or Kazeem Sarumi in Year 11, please give them a pat on the back for this!
As you may know, we’ve been taking part in the Rudolph Walker Drama Competition for 4 years now. Rhys & Kazeem have participated every year – together winning ‘Best Play’ in 2012 and Kazeem won ‘Best Actor’ that same year. On top of this, we’ve been invited to the House of Lords, been to dinner with Mr Walker, taken part in interviews, etc. Last visit, Mr Walker commented that we were the easiest, most helpful school to work with. In conclusion, we’ve made a very positive impression!
