School productions

Both productions were sold out nearly every night with parents, friends and the local community coming together to watch over 100 pupils putting on flawless performances night after night.


Music Reward Trips

For the past couple of years, the Music department has invited pupils from years 9 and 10 to travel to the capital to experience the best musicals the West End has to offer. In 2016 pupils had the opportunity to watch the world-renowned performance of Wicked and this year will be entertained by The Phantom of the Opera as well as a tour around the world of Harry Potter at Warner Bro Studios.
