Year 10 and 11 – Romeo and Juliet

Students in Years 10 and 11 were treated to a performance of their GCSE English Literature set text Romeo and Juliet.

We were joined in school by performers from The Globe Players, the foremost Shakespeare and Children’s Theatre company in London and the South East, for a lively and informative adaptation of the play. Students enjoyed watching key scenes, including a sword fight and the famous balcony scene, with key moments explained by the knowledgeable cast members. With the opportunity to ask questions following the performance, this was a fantastic addition to the study and revision of the play which is currently taking place in class.
