St Paul's Catholic College Providing Education For The Diocese Of Westminster
This week we were lucky enough to have a visit from the Globe Players. This highly entertaining theatre troupe performed for all of our Key Stage 3 students, giving a lively ‘Introduction to Shakespeare’ for Year 7, followed by performances of ‘The Tempest’ for Year 8 and ‘Romeo and Juliet’ for Year 9. As well as watching the often hilarious performances, the students found the commentary on language and themes extremely useful for their study of the plays in English, and were fascinated by the Q&A sessions with the actors that followed. The whole day was extremely successful for helping the students appreciate the texts in performance and bringing the characters they have studied to life.
