Student reporter, Oliver, reports on the recent Shakepeare workshop enjoyed by Year 9 students: An actor from the Globe theatre kindly visited us to give us a taster on what it is really like to act in plays by William Shakespeare. In our English lessons, we are studying ‘Much Ado About Nothing’, a play written by Shakespeare in and around the late 1590s.
Finchley Catholic High School 2-0 Colne Community School
Finchley were heading into the biggest game the team has had since they have been at the school. The National Cup quarter final. Merely saying it seemed inconceivable, Finchley were in the top 8 school teams in the whole of England and had the chance to make it into the top 4. They had the chance to play in a National Cup semi-final. Every player knew what was at stake, it was a massive occasion, the biggest match of their lives. But the question was, could they rise to it?
The ‘best of both worlds’ sums up what we offer: a dedicated Sixth Form Centre, but the benefits of the facilities of a whole school; a cohesive Sixth Form community, but a wider community with opportunities for leadership; the independence and privileges associated with being a Sixth Former, but the support and structures of an excellent pastoral system and individual academic provision.
