Our boys enjoyed welcoming Year 6 students from St. John's Primary School to join us for an activity run by 'Panto in a Day'.

The Year 6, 7 and 8 boys all watched the abridged performance of Macbeth (cleverly performed by only three actors) and the the Year 6 boys remained afterwards (with the Year 6 students from St. John's) to have a workshop related to the play.

Although Shakespearean language was used in the performance and the workshop, the Year 6 students were not daunted; in fact, they appeared to take great delight in engaging with the original text. One student from St. John's, Freddie, commented on how much deeper you can learn when having fun.
