Dear families,

We hope you have had a good weekend in the Sitges sunshine.

London Colonias, Years 10-11

A big thank you to Claire and Iain for leading the History and English trip to London last week.

A wonderful week of culture with theatre trips to Macbeth at the National Theatre, The Woman in Black at the Fortune Theatre, and an acting workshop on Macbeth at Shakespeare’s Globe theatre. There were also a trip to the London Dungeon, a walking tour of Victorian London and a Vance Joy concert at the O2, as well as being housed in the historic youth hostel beside St Paul’s Cathedral. Pupils didn’t want to come home!
