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
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
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.
