The department organises a number of theatre trips to both local, London and other theatres, as well as to cinemas to see streamings - live and recorded - of performances.
Additionally we are looking to establish a new residential trip for our A-level and IB students to Stratford-Upon-Avon to see productions of Shakespeare’s plays, as well as take part in workshops and visit local
Our sixth form students are also able to take advantage of attending lecture days on some of the texts studied given by leading academics from UK universities, giving them the opportunity to develop and enhance
their knowledge of their exam texts but also to experience university style lectures and get a flavour of what life is like at university.
VISITING AUTHORS & LECTURERS
A number of visiting speakers are welcomed into school to give talks to our students across all year groups, as well as inviting in guest lecturers to enhance the study of some texts at A-level and IB to lecture
on the contexts of texts such as ‘The Leopard’ and ‘One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich’.
Visiting authors include Alan Gibbons, Simon Scarrow and Lucy Strange.
