Shakepeare's Birthplace

The English Department organised a trip in November for students from years 9 and 10 to travel to Stratford upon Avon and see the birthplace of our most famous playwright. Students were able to walk through his house and find out more about his life, before watching short extracts of his plays being performed and explained by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust’s in-house actors. In the afternoon they visited the RSC Theatre to see a fantastic performance of The Merry Wives of Windsor.
