Playing Shakespeare

As part of the Playing Shakespeare with Deustche bank programme, a group of students from Year 8 and 7 were able to go on a free trip to Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. Watching a special student production of Romeo and Juliet, boys enjoyed sitting in the ‘gentleman’s seats ‘ and were happy they did not have to experience a downpour of rain which fell on the ‘groundlings’ who were standing in the audience below.

An enjoyable afternoon was had by students and staff and, hopefully, this will be a great platform for the study of Shakespeare in their English classes this summer.
