On Thursday the 25Th of February seven pupils from Years Seven, Eight and Nine attended the Performing Shakespeare semi-finals at the English Speaking Union in Mayfair. All seven of us had been asked to prepare and learn a monologue or duologue by Shakespeare and then perform it in front of a rather scary panel of Judges.
We had already competed in an earlier round of the competition and were delighted to find out that we had won through to the next stage. Mrs Denman, Miss Bliss and the seven lucky winners made our way up to London, filled with anticipation and excitement. Despite our nerves we all performed amazingly and were extremely proud of our performances. Sadly none of us made it through to the final but it was an amazing experience.
Well done to everyone who took part and thank you Mrs Denman and Miss Bliss for organising and taking us.
