Amazing, fantastic, awesome, brilliant - these are just some of the superlatives that were uttered by the audience following our school production ‘School of Rock’ last week!! I received lots of lovely comments and emails from parents, grandparents and extended family who had been to watch our show. In my humble opinion it was one of the best productions we have ever done and the spirit in the cast, staff and parents was quite something to behold. It showcased what makes our school so special: pupils, staff and parents all working together to give opportunities for our fantastically gifted students to shine their talents brightly! None shone more brightly than our head boy and lead part ‘Dewey Finn’ in a mesmerising performance which he kept up for 4 consecutive days - I have no idea how he managed to summon up the energy to do it;  the exuberance of youth!! I am so proud of all the pupils and staff who willingly gave up so much of their time to ensure we had a production we all could be proud of - thank you.
