English Trip to Stratford

English Trip to Stratford

English Department Trip to Stratford

On Wednesday 20th April all English students in 6.1 were fortunate enough to visit Stratford for the day as part of the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare. 

The day started with a lecture from a Shakespearean specialist who talked about the four texts that the 6.1 are currently studying, including ‘King Lear’. The lecture was interesting and insightful and all the 6.1s benefited highly from the lecture, gaining points that were definitely worthy of note. The lecture included ideas on how Shakespeare created drama that really captured his audience.

Afterwards there was lunch and the opportunity to go and see the sights of Stratford. Boys were given a guided tour around Shakespeare’s birthplace, which had been reconstructed as if he lived there today. 

In all it was a very fascinating and enjoyable trip that was appreciated by all. Many thanks must go to Mrs Maybank and Mr Nash for organising the trip.
