‘The Academy’ Workshop
This term, pupils were offered the chance to get involved in an exciting Drama activity. On the afternoon of 30th April, GCSE pupils from years ten and eleven participated in a theatre workshop provided by ‘The Academy’ from Newcastle-Under Lyme college.
Two graduating students (who have been accepted to study at a top London Drama school) and a professional London music director led the session where pupils participated in a rigorous physical warm up and then sang a song from the musical ‘Sister Act’.
Pupils were given singing/vocal advice and several pupils including Emily Jones, Olivia Ryles-Boughey and Molly Robertson were brave enough to sing solo! Pupils thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and gained a lot from it, some expressing an interest in visiting ‘The Academy’ next year.
