On Thursday 27th September, Mr Watkins and Mrs Wilkinson accompanied GCSE and A level Drama students to Nottingham Playhouse to see a Kneehigh Theatre Company production of Fup: A Modern Fable. Kneehigh are renowned for their energetic and innovative productions and this performance was no exception. The students were thoroughly moved by the both hilarious and heart- warming show that explored themes relating to family, love and loss. There were also plenty of ideas for students to take inspiration from for their own devised performances, for instance the excellent use of multi-role, strong characterisation, mesmerising puppetry and bold use of design elements. A truly great day had by all.
Upper Sixth A level Geologists took two days out recently. Led by Dr Aggett, the first day was a study of geological sites in Lincolnshire. Students saw red and white chalk at Red Hill, at Asterby and studied glacial deposits at Welton le Wold.
On the second day, the students travelled to Castleton in Derbyshire where they studied the geology around Mam Tor (pictured).
