As part of our Remembrance activity, and to mark this year's centenary of the start of World War 1, Year 9 and the GCSE and A level Drama students had the exciting opportunity to go to Bristol Old Vic theatre to see “ War Game”.
This play was inspired by Michael Foreman’s novella and it told the story of the opening months of the First World War through the eyes of a village football team who sign up, train, are despatched to the Front and then play in the famous Christmas day match across No Man’s Land.
It was a wonderful performance, and really helped our young students to make connections and draw similarities between the men who fought and died for us and themselves. It was a powerful and moving story and an excellent experience for all our students.
