We are very proud of the fact that once again our results are the best they have ever been with 59% of our students achieving at least 5 GCSEs at grade A*-C. At the moment 18 of our 23 GCSE subjects are above the national average. Four years ago only 3 subjects had results above the national average....more

Pantomime 2014

On the 9th and 10th of December 2014 the Yr.11 BTEC Performing Arts classes were ready to perform their pantomimes to several audiences. Two of our Creative Arts reporters, Nikisha and Aleksandra, went to the dress rehearsal and witnessed the groups performing. Both Creative Arts ambassadors said the Pantomimes were very strong and well-delivered. The students were totally focused and determined to deliver a wonderful performance. They helped each other throughout the rehearsal. The rehearsals enabled the students to perform to a high standard during their Tuesday and Wednesday performances to local primary schools. The pantomimes performed were Aladdin Saves Christmas, Cindy, Snow White and the Christmas Elves, Sleeping Beauty and Little Red. The Tuesday audience was made up of year 5 and 6 children from Woodstock, Stokes Wood and Beaumont Lodge Primary School. On Wednesday approximately 180 children from year 4 and 5 joined us from ARH . The performances were a great success, with many primary school children feeling very pleased. This enabled the year 11’s to receive positive feedback from their audience, in fact on Thursday 18th of December over 70 handmade Christmas cards were received from the children at ARH especially for the performers. During the rehearsal, Jack Lambert was interviewed and he expressed his opinion about the rehearsals:

“The rehearsals gave me an idea as to how it will be in the future and by experiencing rehearsals, I feel as if I am practising more, which enables me to develop my skills, which will hopefully result in me having a successful career related to drama. During my performance, I was challenged to speak in an accent. It was difficult for me to maintain the accent, although after numerous rehearsals I was able to overcome it. I have wanted to perform all my life and choosing Performing Arts as a subject was the best choice I ever made!”

Mrs Cartwright was very pleased with the overall success of the shows after so many hours of hard work had gone into them. She thrilled to have so many children from the local area to watch and enjoy the students work. This was the 5th annual primary school pantomime event and we look forward to next years.
