On Wednesday 21st February, our cohort of Year 13 students embarked on a trip to the Northern Stage in Newcastle to see The Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Hamlet which is currently touring the UK.

A Level English Literature students were given the opportunity to study their exam text ‘in action’ – just in time for revision!  

Head of English, Mrs Barnes said: “It was a fabulous opportunity for the students to see The Royal Shakespeare Company and an invaluable experience in terms of their progress.  The students enjoyed the trip, tears were shed, emotions were felt – good times were had; I look forward to seeing this experience translate into their written responses in class.”
