Shakespeare's Schools' Festival
Shakespeare Schools Festival is the UK's largest youth drama festival, offering students from all backgrounds the opportunity to perform Shakespeare on their local professional stage.
Following the success of last year’s performance at the New Wimbledon Theatre, year 8 students will be participating in the Shakespeare Schools’ Festival for the third year running, performing ‘The Tempest’ at the Secombe Theatre in Sutton in November. Rehearsals will begin in the Autumn term, but students are already excited about exploring and developing their drama skills in the Summer term SSF club. Jovan Miller, currently in year 7 who has been attending the club said: ‘It’s a wonderful opportunity which simply can’t be missed and will give memories that will last a life time.’
