On Thursday 16th March our year 13 drama students wowed the audience with exam performances of their student devised pieces and scripted work, including a section of Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar named Desire. Despite one student recovering from Appendicitis and another suffering from Laryngitis the show had to go on and after two intensive days of final rehearsals the students did themselves proud.
On the 9th March Year 12 participated in a Holocaust Study Day. The day focused on educating students about what happened during the Holocaust and on reflecting on how this affects us today.

For the second part of the day students were able to listen to a Holocaust survivor; Dorit Oliver-Wolff.
