In September there was a drama trip to Richmond Theatre in London to see the play ‘Noughts and Crosses’. I interviewed our Head Girl Emma about this. She said it was eye-opening and inspiring, among many other positive things. The performance was about a girl called Sephy and a boy called Callum. It’s a more modern version of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and a flipped version of what society used to be. The story challenges our perceptions of race, power and truth.

Our Head Girl Emma seemed to have really enjoyed the trip and I’m sure everyone else who attended did too.

Mrs Harris (Head of Drama and Dance) said “I love running trips and allowing students to see a wide variety of performance work. It was important for me to take the students to see a performance that challenges serious themes such as segregation”.

Thank you to Mrs Harris for organising the trip, for some, this was their first opportunity to see live theatre.
